Who Are We?

The GETA Group is an expanding circle of wildland firefighters; fire managers, hotshots, helitack, smokejumpers, and engine crew members interested in experiential learning, incident management, and geospatial technologies. 

We explore and apply emerging user-friendly technologies to enhance incident management capabilities. We 
focus our efforts on training and simulations, remote networking and communication, mobile devices and applications, and visualization tools, especially Google Earth.


The links within the Navigation Tabs to the left will take you to sub-pages that go into further detail about the training and incident management applications we are working on.

We have also created a 'Data Dump', which is a catch-all for posting our works in progress and sharing files. Feel free to poke around and see if any of the unpolished products strike your fancy.

Finally, there is a compilation of web links that we have found useful.

If you have any comments for the group, new ideas or suggestions on how we can improve, please sign in and leave a comment below or send an email to: getagroupsim@gmail.com
