Videodisc/Microcomputer Technology in Wildland Fire Behavior Training 1

By M. J. Jenkins and K. Y. Matsumoto-grah


Abstract: Interactive video is a powerful medium, bringing together the emotional impact of video and film and the interactive capabilities of the computer. Interactive videodisc instruction can be used as a tutorial, for drill and practice and in simulations, as well as for information storage. Videodisc technology is being used in industrial, military and medical applications for training, sales, education, and information systems. A project is underway to demonstrate the application of interactive videodisc instruction to wildland fire management by producing a program on wildland fire behavior. In recent years, fire research has developed a large body of complex information. Proper wildland fire management and use requires a thorough understanding of combustion, fire behavior, fire ecology and history, fire economics, fire effects, and prescribed fire practices. Large areas of valuable resources and human lives are often at stake during prescribed fire and fire suppression activities, making thorough, up-to-date professional trainin
