                                     Fire Risk Analysis
                                        South Hills
The South hills Area is characterized by several topographic features that are problematic and
one feature that is a benefit from a fire protection perspective.

Slopes range from 7.5% to greater than 50%. Of all the topographic features reviewed, the slope
is among the most important. Fire will generally spread faster uphill than downhill and fuels
farther up the slope will be preheated and ignite easier than other fuels.

There are canyons or draws, which acts as a chimney that will affect fire behavior and the rate of
spread of wildfires starting in or near this draw will be increased. These chimneys trap heat,
intensify combustion of the fuels, and often intensify the winds.

Saddles provide the potential for rapid rates of spread because fire is pushed through saddles
faster during up slope fire runs. Typically firefighters, try to avoid saddles for firefighting

Aspect is the direction a slope is facing. The orientation of a slope to the sun has a direct bearing
on the amount of solar radiation that reaches the surface. The amount and type of fuel available
varies greatly depending on the aspect of the ground.

South and southwest aspects are the most vulnerable to fire, due to the fact that the fuels are
usually lighter, flashy and easier to ignite.

Components of the topographic features that are a benefit, in this particular case, are the ridges.
Ridge lines provide a break between slopes and are one of the best places to construct a fire line.

Climatic Considerations
Dry and warm weather during the summer fire season increases the likelihood of a significant
wildfire. These conditions increase the ease of ignition and make wildfires burn more rapidly.

During the summer fire season, the Helena area’s average fire weather is characterized by:

       Temperature:            82 degrees
       Relative Humidity:      34%
       Wind Speed:             3 mph
       Wind Direction:         West – Southwest
Extreme fire weather for Helena area is:

       Temperature;            91 degrees
       Relative Humidity:      11%
       Wind Speed:             21 mph
       Wind Direction:         West – Southwest

Wind is the most important factor influencing wildfire behavior. Increased wind speed allows
fires to travel faster, lengthens flames, and makes more fuels available for burning. Low
humidity dries the moisture from the fuels in the environment, thus increasing the ease of
ignition of those fuels.

Fuel is required for any fire to burn. In a wildfire, fuels consist of vegetation, both living (e.g.,
trees, shrubs, and grasses) and dead (e.g., pine needles, fallen branches and dead trees). In an
urban/wildland interface fire, fuel consists of not only the vegetation, but includes the homes as
well. The amounts (i.e., loading), size, fuel moisture and other characteristics of the fuels
available for burning influence the ability to ignite, rate of spread, flame lengths and other fire

The South Hills Area is composed of three primary fuel types:

        Fuel Model 1 – Fire spread is governed by the fine, very porous, and continuous
        herbaceous fuels that have cured or are nearly cured. Fires are surface fires that move
        rapidly through the cured grass and associated material. Very little shrub or timber is
        present, generally less than one-third of the area. Annual and perennial grasses are
        included in this fuel model.

        Fuel Model 2 – Open pine stands typify these fuels. Perennial grasses and forbes are the
        primary ground fuel but there is enough litter and branch wood present to contribute
        significantly to the fuel loading. Some brush and shrubs may be present but they are of
        little consequence. Fuel Model 2 will offer the most intense fire behavior for firefighters
        to suppress. These fuels can support high intensity, long-duration fire during critical fire
        weather, long-range spot fires occurring over ½ mile away are common, rates of spread
        are slow to very fast, flare-ups are higher than the trees and are frequent to continuous,
        true crown fires are possible. The just burned area is untenable to humans for an hour or
        more. The fire front is impassable.

       Fuel Model 10 – These are dense conifer stands. This Model represents a high fuel
       hazard with potential for high intensity crown fires. Crowning out, spotting, and torching
       are more frequent in this fuel situation, leading to potential fire control difficulties.
       Examples are insect-or disease-ridden stands, wind-thrown stands, and over mature
       situations with deadfall.

Fuel Model 10 will offer the most intense fire behavior for firefighters to suppress. These fuels
can support high intensity, long duration fire during critical fire weather. Long-range spot fires
occurring over ½ mile away are common. Experienced firefighters are most cautious in these
fuels and are ever fearful of the crown fire potential. Rescue of persons entrapped by hot
wildfires in these fuels are nearly impossible. Property, real and personal, can face complete
destruction. Injuries can be serious and deaths may easily occur.

Frequent flare-ups can occur in Fuel Model 2 during critical fire weather and inexperienced
people are usually afraid and can panic when these areas burn. Property, real and personal, can
sustain heavy losses in Fuel Model 2 under these critical conditions.
The South Hills Area wildland fire problems are primarily going to result from a fire starting at
the base of a slope and running up slope toward the ridges. A fire starting downhill in any
direction and not immediately controlled by the fire department, will significantly impact
surrounding properties.

The prevailing winds in our area are generally out of the Southwest and can reach speeds of 30 to
50 miles per hour during the passage of dry cold fronts. An uncontrolled wildfire originating up
wind has the potential to spread into the South Hills from the Southwest with spotting potential
to well within the Helena City Limits. This is particularly true if a crown fire were to develop.

From the firefighter’s perspective, a key fire behavior indicator of the intensity of a wildfire is
the flame length produced by the burning fuel.

                      Fire Suppression Interpretations from Flame Length

      Flame Length                                      Interpretations
                               Fires can generally be attacked at the head or flanks by
     Less than 4 feet          firefighters using hand tools. Handline should hold fire.
                               Fires are too intense for direct attack on the head with hand
        4 to 8 feet            tools. Handline cannot be relied upon to hold the fire.
                               Bulldozers, engines and retardant drops can be effective.
                               Fires may present serious control problems: torching,
       8 to 11 feet            crowning and spotting. Control efforts at the head will
                               probably be ineffective.
                               Crowning, spotting and major fire runs are probable. Control
       Over 11 feet            efforts at the head of the fire are ineffective.

Under the normal afternoon weather conditions anticipated, fire behavior in Fuel Model 2 and 10
would have flame lengths of less than 4 feet and could be suppressed by firefighters using hand
tools. Handline should contain the fire.

Assuming the fire remained a surface fire under these average conditions, the arriving
firefighters would find the fire moving up slope at from 130 to 600 feet per hour depending upon
percent of slope. Within the first twelve (12) minutes the fire would be less than .2 acre. By the
end of the first hour, the fire could be from less than one acre to as much as six acres depending
upon the fuel type burning.

Modeled fire behavior for the “extreme” Helena July afternoon indicates that Fuel Model 2 and
10 would have flame lengths from six to eight feet. These flame lengths are beyond the safe
capabilities of firefighters without the support of bulldozers, large engines, and retardant drops.
The fire could present serious control problems with a moderate increase in winds that would
cause torching, crowning, and spotting. A crowning fire in Fuel Model 10 could exhibit a
forward Rate-of-Spread of over one mile an hour with flame lengths of over 100 feet. Crown
fires have been known to travel up to three (3) miles per hour. Within 12 minutes, arriving
firefighters could find the fire as large as 4 to 5 acres and, by the end of the first hour, a fire
approaching 150 to 200 acres is possible and could become a significant Wildland/Urban
Interface fire.

      10.      Air-tanker retardant drops and helicopter bucket operations: Establish communications
               and keep fire personnel out of the drop zone
       Critical Safety Actions
1.      Wear full PPE – All firefighters dressed in PPE, either brush gear or structure and
        brush gear (for FFs riding or attached to structure engines or crew capable apparatus).

2.     Report to your assigned supervisor – All fire crews must check-in with your
       assigned supervisor.

3.     Crews stay together – All firefighters must stay together as crews.             Work within
       the system if you need additional firefighters or need to be rehabbed.

4.     1st call, immediate answer communications – All crew leaders, apparatus
       officers, or persons in charge of a crew of firefighters must listen to their assigned tactical
       channel so that their Task Force Leader can reach them on their first radio call. If your
       Task Force Leader cannot reach you after three attempts, they will send a Rapid
       Intervention Crew to find you.

5.     Drive slower rather than faster – The people you see may not be expecting you
       to be where you are. Drive extra careful. Please ride in a seated position and wear your
       seatbelt. The area you are driving in may have a reduced visibility due to smoke and high
       winds. Use emergency lights and headlights for visibility.

6.     In an emergency, announce “Emergency Traffic” – If you have an
       emergency, call your supervisor, announcing that you have “emergency Traffic”. Give
       your location, then the nature of the emergency. Stay available on the radio. Respond
       inside the system.

7.     Follow the risk management plan:
       1.      Response is initiated on the assumption that lives and property can be protected
               from imminent danger.
       2.      Firefighters will risk their lives a lot (calculated, significant) to protect savable
       3.      Firefighters will risk their lives a little (calculated, significant) to protect savable
       4.      No risk to Firefighters will be allowed to protect lives or properties that are
               already lost.

8.     Remember LACES:
       L       LOOKOUT(S)
       A       AWARENESS
       C       COMMUNICATION(S)
