NO ADS! Works without internet access, only needed for graphing capabilities.
An extension of the popular Rothermel surface fire spread model with full graphing capability and multiple model runs for easier interpretation and calibration. This is the fire model used throughout the country for management and research needs. Bring it anywhere.
Become more familiar with the model fire management depends on. All the fire behavior prediction you receive on or off the fireline has this model at its core. A more informed and observant wildland firefighter is a better one.
Enter the standard inputs of slope, wind speed, fuel moistures, and fuel model in multiple formats.
All 53 vegetation full models are included even the fully dynamic models; the standard 13 along with the new Scott and Burgan 40 are here.
Version 1.1 Update: The fuel model description page is now live. Photos and parameters of all 53 standard fuel models are now available. Fixed a small grammatical error as well.
Many more updates on the way!
The map screen displays the before mentioned fire weather alerts and the latest bounds for named wild fires. You must zoom in to view the boundary of a wildfire. The map also displays satellite detected fires across North America. The bounds of any smoke is painted as well when it is available (that data is sporadically released from government sources).
You also have the ability to change the type of base map from Normal Google Map, Hybrid, Terrain, and Satellite. Additionally vehicle traffic overlay can be enabled which may be helpful in an evacuation type of event.
This app is intended for the continental United States.
Bug reports, comments, concerns will be appreciated!

The app is user friendly, and fully customizeable. Fire Accountability can be set up for your department’s operations in minutes. In the Set Up screen, you will have the option to pre-program up to 50 companies. This simple feature allows the app to be adapted for use in systems ranging from large metro departments to the smallest rural departments. Whether your department uses engine companies, team numbers, or a combination of the two, Fire Accountability will work for you. While still in the Set Up screen, select a Benchmark Time, default email address for time stamped logs, and you’re ready to Command your first incident.
Simplicity is the key. Fire Accountability utilizes simple drag and drop technology to track crews. After selecting from one of dozens different structure types and configurations, Wild Fire or Dive Rescue, the user will be taken to the Accountability Screen. This is where you will stay, until the conclusion of your incident. In the Accountability Screen, you will find a visual representation of the incident type that you selected, divided into divisions, along with your pre-programmed companies. As you assign units, just drag and drop them into their divisions. Using the “NEW” company icon, you can add as many companies to your incident as you need. It all happens right there. No jumping from screen to screen. The user will have a clear look at all of their companies, at all times.
Fire Accountability also assists Fire Officers in managing MAYDAYs. The MAYDAY function is one of dozens of great features imbedded in the app. Fire Accountability will also remind you to perform key functions, as the incident progresses. As you complete tasks like conducting a primary search, hooking up to an FDC, assigning a Safety Officer or contacting utilities, the application tracks your progress. Forget one of these critical tasks and Fire Accountability will alert to remind you. The accountability screens also contain a running timer, to help you track your time on scene. At your pre-selected benchmark times, the app will alarm reminding you to conduct a par, re-assess or confirm your strategy. All these features packed into one simple screen! EVERY MOVE YOU MAKE IS TRACKED IN AN EMAILABLE/PRINTABLE TIME STAMPED LOG!
We are continuing to add new features and updates. If you have any requests, go to www.fireaccountability.com

Version 2.0 - Includes a Friction Loss Calculator. The calculation is based on a fire hose diameter, fire hose length and GPM.
Version 3.0 - Removed adds and making it a paid for app so I can afford to continue development for the app.
Developed for you by SpotFire to make life a bit easier for wildland firefighters.
To use this app, you need Fahrenheit and Feet for your units. Input your Air Temp, Wet Bulb Temp, and Elevation and mash the button, your RH Value as a percentage will appear on the screen. Simple as that.
Thank you for your feedback.
This app has NO ads, NO permissions and requires NO network connection once installed.
