Every successful fire management strategy starts with accurate on-site weather observations. Kestrel Fire Weather Meters measure all relevant weather variables needed by Fire Behavior Analysts (FBAN’s), meteorologists, and deployed firefighters to understand how a fire is evolving and how to keep the crew safe. The new PRO line of Kestrel Fire Weather Meters give you the ability to track conditions and view trends right on the unit, as well as send detailed data reports using the free Kestrel LiNK app. The PRO meters also have the National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) Probability of Ignition (PIG) and Fine Dead Fuel Moisture (FDFM) tables built right in, eliminating the complexity, time and errors involved in employing paper lookup tables. Unlike a traditional belt weather kit, a Kestrel Meter is ready to take all readings instantly, and the PRO meters log temperature, humidity and pressure even when off, giving instant visibility of trends.
Kestrel Fire Weather Meters are ready to take measurements instantly, with no setup or lookup tables required. PRO meters have the FDFM and PIG tables built right in, and log temperature, humidity and pressure even while off.
