Timmons Group Announces Acquisition of DTSWildfire

DTSWildfire provides a wide range of services and software products used to support fire protection, planning, response, suppression, and incident management.

The frequency and severity of wildfires has dramatically increased over recent years.

In addition to the acquisition of DTSWildfire, Timmons Group will look to leverage the mobile asset inventory capacity within DTS.

Lowell Ballard, Director of Geospatial Solutions with Timmons Group stated "We believe this is a very positive development for our Forestry and Natural Resource clients.  We have a long history of working with state, federal and private natural resource and conservation clients and by adding both expertise and software products specific to wildfire management – we can better serve our clients.  Wildfire management is an extremely important element of all forestry organizations, and the need for technology advancements to address the multiple challenges in this field is growing."

With the acquisition, David Buckley will be joining Timmons Group to lead their wildfire service and product lines. With over 25 years of experience within the industry Mr. Buckley will enhance the ability to respond to clients’ needs with a full suite of forest land management products and services. “The combination of our wildfire subject matter expertise and existing capabilities with the rich suite of forest land management services already within Timmons Group is very exciting.
