FIRE SAFETY

The Natural Resources Canada Canadian Wildland Fire Information System (CWFIS) creates daily fire weather and fire behavior maps year-round and hot spot maps throughout the forest fire season. The CWFIS monitors fire danger conditions and fire occurrence across Canada. Daily weather conditions are collected and used to produce fire weather and fire behavior maps. In addition, Canadian Red Cross has helpful tips for Before, During and After Wildfire. Click below for further information.
