Watch FPE Professor Michael Gollner Explain Boreal Fire Science
At the University of Maryland, Fire Protection Engineering Assistant Professor Michael Gollner studies wildfires for a living. And inside his lab, he’s recreating parts of the Fort McMurray, Alberta, blaze.
“It’s not that we want to prevent forest fires and wildfires in general; we want to be able to put it more into a natural ecosystem. And around our communities, lower the fuel load so that we have very small fires, less intense, and more controlled,” Gollner explains in the segment.
