Meteorologist: Weather forecasting at fires

When a large fire erupts and the federal government sends in firefighting crews, Lisa Kriederman is usually on her way to the scene. Kriederman is the incident meteorologist and fire weather program leader the National Weather Service in Boulder. The federal agency flies her to fires so she can run the weather forecasts and work with the incident commander to help manage the blaze and keep firefighters safe. Kriederman will speak about her experiences on Thursday at the Suzanne and Walter Scott, Jr. Bioengineering Building on the Colorado State University campus. Her presentation starts at 7:30 p.m. in room 101 and is sponsored by the Northern Colorado chapter of the American Meteorological Society.  The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Matt Rogers via email or phone at (970) 491-8124.
