Wildland Toolkit

Peakview Software LLC
Screenshot #1 (iPhone)
Designed for wildland firefighters, this app has something for newbies as well as seasoned professionals. This is a tool you will use for years, during the off season, at camp, and even on the fireline.

Wildland Toolkit provides a plethora of wildland fire reference material, including the actual IRPG, ICS forms, quizzes that cover NWCG courses, photos of tools and aircraft types, etc. Learn new things, and reinforce what you already know.

If you’ve had S290 or S390, you know how hard it is to calculate things like FDFM, PIG, rate of spread, flame length, etc. With this app, those numbers are spit out instantly as you take the weather! Now you can store all your weather logs for all your fires right on the app. The goal has always been to make recording the weather easier than paper.

Even better, you can share those weather logs from the field if you have network coverage, or wait until later and pull them up on your iPad or M1-based Mac, where all the data is synced, and do further analysis and sharing.

Just enter the fuel, weather, and topography information and Wildland Toolkit will generate:

--RH and Dewpoint
--Fine Dead Fuel Moisture
--Probability of Ignition
--Flamelength
--Rate of Spread
--Scorch height
--Direction of Max Spread
--Effective Windspeed

All 54 of the new fuel models are supported, with a guide to select the proper fuel model, complete with sample photos.

NOTE: There are no known calculation errors in this version. We will immediately fix any problems reported to us directly.

Wildland Toolkit is not a tutorial on wildland fire behavior, so if the terms above do not make any sense, then this application will not teach you. It is assumed that you know the same background information that is presented in an S290 or S390 class. The calculations done in the Wildland Toolkit are similar to what is done with the BEHAVE software, but you will find the user interface much easier to use.

--In addition, numerous safety checklists and reference guides are included, such as watchouts, fire orders, safety zones, watchouts, structure defense, sizeups, crew briefing, after action reviews, LCANS, and complexity analysis etc.

--Photos and diagrams are provided for cloud types, hand signals, common wildland tools, firefighting aircraft, and ICS org charts.

--Interactive practice quizzes are included for basic wildland fire, CPR, NIMS IS-700, S230 and S290.

--ICS reference guide with position descriptions, an index of forms, and incident typing

--Pack Test Timer guides you through your pack test and tells you your current pace and expected finish time ***

--Cool Slope Calculator uses your phone to tell you slope

--And if that's not all, the IRPG is provided in PDF form

*** Pack Test timer uses GPS. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. GPS is not used if the Pack Test is stopped.

What's new in version 5.1
Better looking weather log reports and graphs; Location screen gets GPS coordinates and address.
