DescriptionThis revised user`s guide will help fire managers interpret the output from FIREFAMILY, a computer program that uses historic weather data for fire planning. With the changes in the National Fire-Danger Rating System, all Forest Service units will need to rerun their historical weather data and use this publication to revise their fire plan. The guide describes options within the program and explains various tables and graphs necessary for planning. It also provides computer specialists with details needed to run the program.
