Prescribed fires are fires that help reduce the catastrophic damage that wildfire creates. prescribed fires work most of the time, but they can be faulty at some points. That's why some people don't agree with using prescribed fires. Even though they sometimes don't work, they can be really helpful when they do work.
Many times, the strength of an establishment is not fully realized until it has proven its ability to overcome a setback and become better for it. Chicago is a primary example of a city which proved its strength by undergoing disaster, and becoming better for it. Perhaps the most jarring of these disasters was the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, symbolized by the second of four stars on the Chicago flag. This tragedy, claiming the lives of hundreds and causing millions of dollars in damage, was horrid, but the city overcame and grew to be one of America’s most influential cities. A crucial element of Chicago’s history, the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 can be understood by studying the cause of its severity, its impact on the city, and the recovery efforts of the people.
Properly built and maintained, mill construction can be a structure that fires can be brought under control before the building is involved in the fire (Brannigan & Corbett, 2015). Unlike mill construction, buildings of ordinary construction are plagued with void spaces that are inherent parts of the construction. Like buildings of ordinary construction, heavy timber buildings may suffer the same disadvantages of having unprotected void spaces. This is due to there design as well as old mill buildings being converted to buildings that were not a part of the original design of the structure. These conversions of the new heavy timber building leaves the buildings at a greater risk of fire spread than that of the mill construction buildings of the past.
Marysville, a beautiful town on the way of the Victorian Snowfields completely changed the way in looked in just a few hours because of the Black Saturday Bushfire. Bushfires are really common in Australia. Bushfires rapidly increases until it is properly controlled. Marysville not receiving rainfall for a fair while, the extreme hear and windy weather contributed to the unstoppable bushfire that occurred on seventh of February 2009.

On a crisp spring morning on March 25th, 1911, young girls and women gathered together to start their normal work routine. Little did the young women know that their lives would be changed forever. Alex Blanck and Isaac Harris, who were tailors from Europe that immigrated to America, were the proprietors of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in Manhattan, New York City. The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire was a tragedy that changed the relationship between labor and industry.
The fire in the Josh Powell arson/ homicide case began in the living room, where the bodies of Josh Powell, and his children Charles Powell and Braden Powell. That would be the incipient stage. Next to the three bodies, two empty ten gallon gasoline cans were found. It is believed that Josh Powell had spread the gasoline around the residence before the children got to the house for the visit. The emergent smoldering happened all around the house where the gas was spread. This is believed to be throughout the whole house. The house rapidly went into a free burn. Fueled by the gasoline spread throughout the house, the flames quickly took off to engulf the entire area. After most of the home was in flames, oxygen regulated smoldering began. This will spread a poisonous gas called carbon monoxide throughout the area. This was the official cause of death for Josh, Charles, and Braden. The children were wounded with an ax before the fire was ignited however. Josh Powell’s death was ruled a suicide, while Charles and Braden’s deaths were both ruled homicides.
Wildland fires have played an important role in North American history. Theyhave helped shape our public and private lands. Wildfires have causedthousands of deaths, destroyed millions of acres of timber and evenseveral towns in their path. However, wildland fire is not solely adestructive force. It is necessary for the growth of some plantspecies, and is part of an ecological cycle. Historically humans havestarted fires to clear the land, suppressed wildfires, allowed fires toburn naturally, and used fire to reduce fuel loads.
Smoke Signals is a movie about a young man names Victor and his friend Thomas who travel to Phoenix, Arizona to escape the reservation they live on. Smoke Signals shows an explicit representation of Freud’s Functionalist Reductionism of Religion as Victors faith and religion is being tested by his emotional turmoil experienced through his life. Smoke Signals also shows a relation to Freud’s concept that religion arises from emotions and conflicts of childhood as well as the need for a fatherly figure in one’s life (both in the celestial and real worlds). This essay will firstly discuss the situations which support the ideas of Freud’s Functionalist Reductionism Theory. Secondly, symbols

Firefighting began in ancient Egypt and spread to the West into Europe and America. The history looks at the pioneers, its evolution and the improvements innovation has brought in.
One of the biggest problems facing the world today is global warming. It is evident that there is climate change around the world. In recent years, we have so many unusual hurricanes, typhoons, floods, droughts and earthquakes. Plants and animals that lived in the cold climates are now disappearing. Many scientists believe that our production of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases is having a heat effect on the atmosphere and this could be dangerous for the environment and human life (Hansen, 2011). This article will examine the causes of global warming, its impacts and the remedies we can do to combat global warming. Many problems could result from global warming. Increase
Today in this paper I am going to write about the major differences between the origin of a fire or explosion, and the cause and determination of a fire. I will first separate the two subjects, then give a few examples of clear differences between them, give a partial scenario, and a conclusion to hopefully give a clear meaning to both terms. Now without further due, I would like to present my thoughts and findings about determining the fire’s origin.
Sustainable forest management requires three major criteria which are the maintenance of ecological processes within the forest (soil formation, energy flow, biogeochemical cycles (carbon, nutrient and hydrological cycles), maintenance of biodiversity of forest, improving the net social benefits derived from the mixture of forest uses within the constraints by considering the future. Forest provides habitats for more than half of the fauna and flora on the Earth (SCBD, 2001). Forest biome plays an important role in mitigating climate change by serving as carbon sinks (Hassan et al., 2005). Forest land is the most fundamental natural resources which become reduced mainly due to anthropogenic pressures. For proper management of land, it is essential to have information about existing land cover and about the naturalness of the land. The increment in forest cover does not mean that
