Test. Iterate. Test again.

In regards to the grass fire after the last test, we work very closely with JSC Operational Safety and JSC Fire Protection Services before, during, and after each test. JSC Fire Protection Services has staff at the test site ready to respond in case of any incident. They also have existing protocols to bring in the Houston Fire Department for additional help. Unfortunately immediately after the test and before the grass fire was contained, another fire call in an on-sight JSC building occurred and half the FPS personnel were required to respond to that incident. While no one was injured and no damage was done to NASA or other property (outside of the grass of course) we do not want another grass fire of that extent. JSC has initiated an incident review team to evaluate the grass fire response and develop mitigation strategies to allow testing to resume as soon as possible.
