The fundamentals of wildfire control
There are 3 primary control tactics
A. suppress the fire very quickly - attack the fire in 5 to 20 minutes
- prevent the fire spreading beyond maybe 1 acre
B. keep fire away from homes - flood a neighborhood with engines and
knock down flames as they approach homes
C. after the fire front has passed thru a neighborhood, maintain
enough engines in the neighborhood to control any building fires that
sprout to life
Yes - that is very simplistic - but it might be useful for ICs to keep
these 3 tactics in mind
In fact - it might be useful to have 3 sectors on every wildfire -
direct attack + interface protection + followup protection
