Types of Monitoring
FTS equipment is used to monitor environmental conditions for a variety of fire weather applications. Permanent or “fixed” stations operate continually throughout the year to constantly collect and transmit data from remote locations to help forecast the danger of wildfires starting in a given area. Portable stations that can be set up in any location temporarily are a valuable tool for prescribed burning. When wildfires do occur, existing networks of fixed stations and the deployment of portable stations surrounding the fire greatly aid efforts to control and suppress the wildfire. But it’s not only wildfires that create an immediate need to monitor weather conditions—natural or man-made disasters that have an environmental impact warrant the need to quickly mobilize weather stations to track the spread of contaminants.
