  • Kestrel 5400FW Fire Weather Meter Pro WBGT w/LiNK Compass & Vane Mount

Wildland firefighters train to withstand the challenge of heavy exertion in extreme conditions. Extreme heat is a constant companion, and protective gear exacerbates the physical strain on a firefighter’s body.

Building heat acclimatization is a critical component of training, but doing so without incurring heat illness or injury is equally critical and challenging. Heat injury is a constant danger with many incidents of heat related illness occurring every year. Heat illness prevention programs recommend measuring Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) and implementing ACGIH work/recovery and hydration guidelines.

WBGT is a much more complete measure of heat stress for the firefighter because it includes the effects of the radiant heat of the sun, fire, or hot surfaces. The Kestrel Fire Weather Meter PRO WBGT adds the WBGT measurement to the full capability of the Fire Weather Meter Pro – making it the complete  tool for monitoring WBGT and fire weather during training or operations.  With pre-programmed ACGIH guidelines and alert settings to indicate when conditions have become extremely unsafe, the Kestrel Fire Weather Meter PRO with WBGT is the ultimate tool for increasing the safety of your crew.
