WILDLAND FIRE LEARNING PORTAL


Having a better understanding of conditions of influence can help us get a better grasp of the pressures, goal conflicts, and other factors that affected the pertinent decisions and actions that took place during the event. Having a grasp of these conditions will aid in making systematic improvements to improve the way we engage in normal work every day.” FLA Guide (2018)
