Description

The Wiltronics ME2000A is specifically designed to be used in the field by officers involved in prescribed burns and wildfires, and provide valuable moisture measurements to assist in determining the burn rate for forest floor fine fuel.

Why do you need moisture measurements?
Fire managers at wildfire or prescribed burns need to be able to measure fuel moisture content quickly and accurately at the site of the fire. The ME2000A can assist Fire managers by determining the percentage of moisture content of fine fuels (leaf matter, surface duff, grass, 1hr fuels) which will help establish the rate at which fires will spread and how likely spotfires will develop. This vital information along with wind speed and direction, current and forecast weather conditions all need to be taken into account when planning a prescribed fire or fighting wildfires.
