When fighting wild fires, protecting lives, houses, and property while ensuring safety for everyone involved demands accurate fire behavior predictions based upon good weather observations. Kestrel weather meters have been relied upon by fire fighters for decades to provide fast, accurate measurement of wind speed, temperature and humidity. The Kestrel 3500FW Fire Weather Meter has been updated specifically for fire fighting, adding barometric pressure, altitude and wet bulb readings and an easy-to-read Probability of Ignition (PIG) and Fine Dead Fuel Moisture (FDFM) reference card. It's a portable monitor for fire fighting that has everything required for a complete weather observation. This one rugged, handheld instrument easily replaces all of the items included in your Belt Weather Kit, providing consistently accurate measurements without prepping a sling psychrometer or risking the possibility of human error.
IP67 waterproof and Mil-SPEC-810G drop tested, these portable fire fighting monitors by Kestrel have been built for the abuse and work that a fire line can dish out. The Kestrel 3500FW Fire Weather Meter includes a hard, rubberized slip-on cover that protects the display and impeller, even when tossed in your pack. Kestrel Weather & Environmental Meters are designed & manufactured in the U.S.A and are backed by our 5-year warranty. Each Kestrel 3500FW is factory calibrated and comes with a certificate of conformity and may be factory or field recalibrated.
