AUSTIN (KXAN) — Despite the recent rain, most of west Austin is just a notch below being listed as a very high risk of wildfires. “In a summer like this summer, the wildfire risk is still high,” said Keri Hines of Texas A&M Forest Service. Hines’ agency has several Simtables, a high tech tool that allows […]
Simtable was deployed on Type 1 Modoc July Complex Wildfire over the summer, amazing to see 2000 firefighters working on 17 simultaneous fires within the complex. We spent several days on site, using Simtable in Operations was a valuable learning experience as we interacted with the several dedicated Incident Management Organizations assigned to the fires.
Simtable Wildfire Simulation video from Texas A&M Forest Service Simtable’s unique training uses interactive agent-based fire modeling, bringing sand table exercises to life in your own high risk areas allowing mitigation and fuels planning in a truly interactive experience.
Island Park, ID Sustainable Fire Community Network recently used Simtable wildfire simulations for a community outreach workshop, part of the summer series – Are You Prepared for Wildfire.
