Kestrel Firefighting Meters & Instruments

Understanding of weather conditions is critical when fighting a fire. Wind speed, wind direction, temperature, and humidity must be measured continuously, gathering the data for fire behaviour models. This enables informed decisions when deploying fire fighters and mobile infrastructure.

Kestrel Meters now include specialist data streams for firefighting including Probability of Ignition (PIG) and Fine Dead Fuel Moisture (FDFM). All this data can be seamlessly transferred to smart phones and tablets via the Kestrel LiNK™ functionality.
