Fuel and Fire Tools (FFT)

Fuel and Fire Tools (FFT) is a software application that integrates the Fuel Characteristics Classification System (version 3.0), Consume (version 4.2), FEPS (version 2.0), Pile Calculator, and Digital Photo Series into a single user interface.  All of the tools were developed by the Fire and Environmental Research Applications Team (FERA) as open-source and freely sharable software and are supported as separate modules.  Fuelbeds are the common currency in FFT.  FCCS requires a list of one to many fuelbeds to run calculations.  Because Consume and the Fire Emission Production Simulator (FEPS) can predict consumption by burn unit, they require fuelbeds to be assigned to a unit with a percentage area entered for each fuelbed.
