Providing location intelligence across the entire life cycle
No matter which part of the wildfire life cycle you are addressing, GIS supports your mission strategies, including preparedness, suppression, rehabilitation, and fuel management. GIS provides firefighters with tools to identify, analyze, and understand the landscape. When a wildfire starts, maps provide the situational awareness decision-makers need to save lives and protect property.
Resilience strategies for wildland fire
Large, fast-moving wildfires present a complex, multifaceted challenge. With GIS, firefighters can analyze physical features through geographic layers that can be weighted, examined individually or collectively, and modeled to understand potential wildfire threat and treatments to reduce potential impacts. As command staff identify priorities and take action to reduce vulnerability, agencies can visualize, record, and track the status of their accomplishments in the field. An executive brief shares how GIS helps decision-makers build resilience across the entire wildfire life cycle.
