'The inherent complexity of the fire environment places very real limitations on a fire researcher's ability to understand and describe fire behavior completely.'


Understanding and describing the fire environment can be accomplished through fire behaviour data collection and documentation building technology transfer to fire management practitioners with the development of practical fire behaviour prediction aids.(McAlpine et al. 1990, p.A.02-8,9)
