LANL Prepares for Fire Season

6a0120a7df94b5970b016768ced1d5970b-320wi LANL, Los Alamos, NM – Fire readiness activities include training with the latest in simulation technology, the Simtable, and a year-round program of fire fuel mitigation.

We can start a fire and we can simulate the response to a fire, how we would mitigate it. We have many different options, whether we cut hand lines or dozer lines, we can simulate water drops, a lot of different options we can use as a training aid to show how we would control a wildland fire. –  Manny L’Esperance, LANL Fire Management Officer
