Region 6 (Pacific Northwest) is experimenting with making information from FTEM (fuel treatment effectiveness monitoring) more accessible to the public. They produced this Dashboard, which I think is really interesting and fun to play with. My favorite thing to do is to look at the reports for the treatment units on fires in country I’ve worked in, and look at the photos.
FTEM also contains information on how many fires encountered fuel treatments in a given year, and what was the outcome. Clearly fires have been encountering fuel treatments, and having effects. That may be counter to some modeling projections (can’t remember the study offhand).
If you’re interested, please explore it and feel free to ask questions and make suggestions in the comments below.
The FTEM team is also working on loading information for more recent years, and analyzing FY ’21 data.
