DescriptionFirefighter Math is a web based interactive resource that was developed to help prepare wildland fire personnel for math based training courses. The website can also be used as a refresher for fire calculations including slope, flame length, relative humidity, flow rates, unit conversion, etc. The website is designed to start with basic math refresher skills and advance to topics that directly apply to advanced wildland fire calculations. Firefighter math was established as a tutorial, and users are encouraged to focus on chapters that are most relevant.
