Training Workshops for the New OK-FIRE Continue: A series of workshops are planned this fall to help people use and understand the new OK-FIRE website. The new OK-FIRE is more user-friendly, but substantially different in terms of layout and content, so training, even for current users, will be important. Training dates/locations include: El Reno, Dec. 13; and Stillwater, Dec. 18. These workshops consist of 6 hours of training and all will be directed by Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering fire meteorologist J. D. Carlson, who serves as program manager.
     Workshops are free, but registration is required. Since, in most cases, space is limited to about 15-25 participants for these workshops, only those who work directly with wildland fire (wildfire and/or prescribed fire) or advise those who do should attend. Registration information is available
here.
