DescriptionIn the year 2025, wildland fire fighting practices have improved significantly over the method employed during the late1900's. Improved methods for predicting severe fire weather conditions, the establishment of the North American Fire Coordination Center, and the utilization of foam products for both wildfire and structural fire control have significantly changed the methods of fire suppression. An increased awareness of the dangers posed by wildfire has been accomplished through a concentrated effort to educate the public. Buildings are being constructed that afford greater protection, and fuel modification surrounding structures is now required by most state and provincial governments. With the accomplishments achieved during the past 40years (1985-2025) it's hard to believe that wildland fire protection could become more efficient or effective, but I am sure it will!
