    Title:Survival zones for wildland firefighters
 
    Year:2009
 
    Status:Current
 
    Researcher(s):Greg Baxter (Lead)
 
    Abstract:This project intends to identify the size of an area in which a firefighter can hunker down to survive a wildfire situation. Little research exists that provides firefighters this information to use when involved in a life-threatening situation. Firefighters must understand that they will be in a very uncomfortable situation, but should survive if they need to use a survival zone.
