Set of Regional Suppression Fire Sites for Demonstration

The use of fire as a suppression tool during unplanned ignitions requires highly trained professionals with large experience and knowledge in fire management. Most fire professionals are exposed only once or twice in their career to high intensity wildfires that burn out of capacity of extinction. The purpose of the net of suppression fire demonstration sites is to train fire professionals in the application of fire during a wildfire and to improve the understanding of fire behaviour and fire operation specificities. Backfiring and burning out as tools for wildfire suppression and the parameters of flank behaviour at large scale are documented.
