     An international network for landscape fire information

Welcome to the FireNet information service.

FireNet as an information service for everyone interested in any aspect
of rural and landscape fires. The information concerns all aspects of
fire science and management - including fire behaviour, fire weather,
fire prevention, mitigation and suppression, plant and animal responses
to fire and all aspects of fire effects.  The service should be of
interest to professional rural and forest fire managers, educators and
trainers, researchers and students working in all aspects of fire,
volunteer fire fighters and organisations, and all rural people
concerned with fire on the land.

The first FireNet node was established in 1993 by Malcolm Gill,
David Green and Chris Trevitt at the Australian National University.
