The Comprehensive Resource
Protection Management System:
Field Observation Recording Tool
Developed by Neal D. Labrie
Backcountry Supervior
Acadia National Park
2004
What is the FORT?
пЃ® A searchable database of resource and
facility sites throughout the park.
пЃ® A training medium to familiarize staff with park
resources and facilities for optimum
protection and management
пЃ® A patrol log that allows site history information
to be passed from the field to management
personnel.
пЃ® A statistical reporting program to analyze and
track patrol functions.
The FORT is comprised of:
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
A Master File
A Photo Log
A Patrol Log
A Map View Page
A Local Offender File
File Search Pages
A Threat Assessment
Calculator
The Master File
The Photo Log
пЃ®
пЃ®
Provides digital
photo records of
a particular site
or park area.
Allows for
tracking of site
conditions, and
can provide a
baseline of
photographic
records for 19jj
prosecutions.
The Patrol Log
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
Provides a record
of patrol by.
resource area.
Can be searched
based on all data
fields.
Allows managers
and field staff to
analyze patrol
information for the
development of
future protection
plans.
The Map View Page
пЃ®
пЃ®
Allows Rangers
to plot and
record patrol
findings on
topographic
maps.
These maps can
be referenced
prior to patrols to
plan routes and
identify specific
locations.
The Local Offender File
пЃ®
пЃ®
Provides a
searchable
local offender
list to be used
by Rangers in
the field.
Can be linked
to the FORT to
relate offender
information to
specific
resource
areas.
Report Research
пЃ®
Allows
managers
to track
patrol
efforts and
findings by
any given
data field.
Patrol Research
пЃ®
пЃ®
Allows for Rangers
to query different
resource areas for
protection
information.
Allows field staff to
review attributes of
park areas before
patrolling, making
for more efficient
patrols.
Threat Assessment Calculator
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
The Calculator
provides numbers
by which to
prioritize resource
patrols
Provides for
integration of
research science
when forming
protection plans.
Combines
resource threat
analysis with field
patrol findings.
Threat Assessment II
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
This screen
produces a total
threat level score
for inter-site
comparison.
The additional
questions allow
for more precise
resource threat
assessment.
Each of these
pages are to be
completed with
the cooperation
of Resource
Management
staff.
Benefits of FORT:
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
Produces searchable, quantitative data for
resource protection teams.
Allows field staff and management to track
changing resource conditions and apply more
efficient operations.
Provides park managers with up-to-date status
reports on sensitive sites.
Creates a learning tool for employees as to what
resources are monitored, their location, and
what steps need to be taken to continue their
protection.
Promotes a closer team environment by
necessitating communication amongst park
divisions for information.
Where it stands now…
пЃ®
The FORT is being used by Pinnacles National Monument
and Acadia National Park for the planning and tracking of
resource protection efforts.
пЃ®
At Pinnacles alone, over 70 identified sites have been
entered into the system including over 400 patrol log
entries and over 150 photographs. Acadia now has over
1800 records in their local offender file, over 60 identified
protection sites, and over 850 patrol reports.
пЃ®
Data entry programs have now been formatted to handheld
Palm devices for “in the field” use.
Where it is going…
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
пЃ®
The FORT will be the foundation of a graduate study thesis
through Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania, in 2006.
PMIS funded work is being done in coordination with
Shenandoah N.P. and other park areas to combine the
abilities of the FORT with other newly created resource
protection management systems (Resource Protection
Fund).
The FORT will be networked with remote log-in capabilities
to provide for total access and development away from the
office.
FORT will incorporate a priority ranking system to assist
managers with the allocation of personnel resources based
on objective, quantifiable site research.
What is needed…
Direct assistance from all park divisions to
consolidate information and provide for the
most recent information to be utilized.
пЃ® Quantitative measures for determining
resource protection priorities.
пЃ® Support from field and management staff
to promote the testing and application of a
revolutionary system.
пЃ®
Conclusion
The Field Operations Recording Tool can
provide the step forward currently needed
by resource managers to actively protect
and monitor the Nation’s Treasures.
пЃ® Specific questions on the program can be
directed to Neal Labrie, Back-Country
Supervisor for Acadia National Park; (207)
