Image: FFS LogoImage: Rotating Firelab PhotographsThe Fire, Fuel, and Smoke Science Program (FFS) of the Rocky Mountain Research Station is located at the Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory in Missoula, Montana. The Program’s scientists, technicians and support staff conducts international, cutting edge work in wildland fire research from fire physics to fire ecology. Specific research activities are centered toward wildland fire processes, terrestrial and atmospheric effects of fire, and ecological adaptations to fire which evolves into the development of associated knowledge tools and applications for both managers and scientists. Our mission is to improve the safety and effectiveness of fire management by creating and disseminating the basic fire science knowledge, tools, and applications for scientists and managers.
