SKGS’ Larry Bradshaw Receives U.S. Forest Service’s Highest Honor

The U.S. Forest Service recognized Larry Bradshaw, SKGS, with it’s highest award for innovation and initiative in developing an Improved National Fire Danger Rating System. Bradshaw used his background in Meteorology to incorporate new advantages in automated wind and temperature monitoring, satellite terrain observation, and archived wind conditions to detail weather factors quickly. The system that Bradshaw, along with another colleague Matt Jolly, helps fire teams predict risk when going out into the field.
