Wildland Fire Sensors Challenge Webinar Presentation

The EPA and other federal partners provided two public webinars in May 2017 to offer information to individuals interested in participating in the Wildland Fire Sensors Challenge.  The webinar presentation provides a brief introduction, perspectives from partners and Challenge details. The Challenge is seeking an accurate, lower-cost, and low-maintenance air quality monitoring system that can be used during a wildfire or controlled fire. The data provided by the sensor system will help federal, state, local and tribal agencies protect the health of first responders and communities affected by the smoke. Written submissions are due Nov. 22 and prototypes must be submitted by Jan. 5.
