Empower Your Front Lines

Maps are essential for fighting wildland fires. You must be able to quickly answer questions such as: where is the fire and how fast is it spreading; what are the priority values to protect; and what are the risks to firefighters and the community? GIS produces maps that answer these and other questions. Yet that is only the beginning. GIS provides the capability for fast, efficient analysis, and data dissemination.



Get a clear picture of the vulnerabilities in your community. Share results instantly with key decision makers and target proactive efforts to reduce wildfire threats.


GIS provides situational awareness with real-time intelligence to understand how changing events and actions impact response operations.


With GIS, better decisions can be quickly displayed, shared, and understood by those who support fire suppression tactics.
