A forest fire simulation exercise was developed for the purpose of supplementing forest fire instruction, presenting students with decision-making situations encountered on forest fires, and introducing them to the fire simulator at Stephen F. Austin State University. The final exercise was developed after preliminary work and development of a more simple exercise. The problems with equipment, recruitment of simulator personnel, and the development and execution of the simulator exercises are discussed. Scheduling adequate time for practice, and providing adequate personnel training were found to be the major obstacles in simulator use. Future fire simulator use at SFA will be dependent upon finding solutions to these problems.
