Dennison, Cova, Fryer write about firefighter safety for The Conversation
Phil Dennison, Tom Cova, and recent Master's graduate Greg Fryer wrote a piece on firefighter evacuation for the Australian news website The Conversation. In the article, they describe Greg's thesis research on modeling "protective action triggers". These triggers can be modeled for expected weather conditions during a fire. When fire crosses a trigger, firefighters should evacuate to a safety zone. Greg's thesis was published in International Journal of Wildland Fire.
