Nowadays, monitoring weather conditions and obtaining reliable and accurate data has become crucial to carry on diverse activities. Firefighters need accurate information to choose the right tactics and equipment to battle an ongoing burn. This data is just as important to ensure people's safety and successful firefighting operations.

WILDFIRE - WILDLAND FIREFIGHTING
Wind is one of the most dangerous problems that a firefighter can face.. High winds make it very difficult to control and anticipate the behavior of the fire. In those cases, having real time wind information can be life saving-data.
Measuring inmediate weather conditions is crucial to ensure a safe environment and to fight wildfires. Our handheld anemometer provides reliable information about the wind speed to understand how the fire is evolving and how to keep it controlled.
Before deploying firefighters and and equipment in an urban fire, there needs to be understanding of the extent of the fire so that resources can be optimized to successfully extinguish it. Monitoring wind speed and direction on-site and in real time is crucial to control the operation and predict the behavior of the fire.
