It is the assimilation of the Fire Intelligence Section and the Fire Weather Program at these levels toproduce various interrelated products. At the Southern California Coordination Center, these two sections will continue to produce their long-standing products, but will collaboratively work together, along with a detailed Fire Behavior Analyst (FBAN) during the fire season, as the OSCC Predictive Services Group producing daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal Fire Weather / Fire Danger Outlook products.
Intelligence... The Intelligence Section provides fire management personnel, incident managers, firefighters and support staff with access to current intelligence on preparedness levels, fire situation, resources, mapping and satellite imagery, climatology, preparedness levels, resource availability and rotations, and fire potential information.
Weather... The weather unit acts as the local meteorological consultant for Southern California Geographic Area Coordination Center and provides daily fire season weather briefings, regional fire weather and other forecasts and services.
Fuels/Fire Danger... This area will contain Fire Danger Rating System reports, pocket cards and charts, for OSCC area and Wildland Fire Assessment System products relating to fuels.
Outlooks... Outlooks are made with the most recent weather data available. It is a general report intended to provide fire management personnel with an area wide outlook.
