The U.S. Forest Service Conducts Test Burns at Vandenberg

The U.S. Forest Service National Technology and Development Program conducts test burns May 11, 2023, while using a fire front simulator system at Vandenberg Space Force Base, Calif. During the simulated burn, the team ran tests on fire shelters, seen on the right side of the photo. All wildland firefighters carry fire shelters while on duty. In circumstances when they cannot escape advancing flames, firefighters are trained to ditch their gear, pull out their fire shelter, and climb inside as the flame front passes. The testing team assessed the temperatures around and inside the fire shelters, examining the amount of fire exposure that begins to break down the materials. This data can make all the difference in protecting firefighters on the line. (U.S. Space Force photo by Senior Airman Tiarra Sibley)
