A few weeks ago we received the sad news of the death of Mr. Doug Campbell. As many of you know, Campbell was part of the Board of Trustees of the Pau Costa Foundation during the first years. Fact that, the Foundation still remembers with nostalgia and pride having had a reference from the world of forest fires. Many of his peers describe him as a brilliant and innovative person in the field of fire behavior.
Mr. Campbell's work has marked a turning point in the course of the fire suppression system in many parts of the world. To him it is owed that today, the management and extinction of forest fires are safer and more effective. Nowadays, its prediction system (CPS) It is used by many fire and rescue services to understand, predict and communicate the behavior of forest fires and plan anticipated strategies to mitigate them with optimal safety conditions.
