Ignition Operations – gearing up for burn season

A couple of us are just back from taking S-234 Ignition Operations at Fox Valley Tech. We were introduced to a kind of mental tool,  “A Human Factors Tool for Wildland Fire,” to help us remain aware of the human factors that can impair decision making. It’s useful to think about this time of year, in the lull before burn season, so I’ll share the link.
