WILDFIRE STATUS

FWAC's wildfire map categorizes the “fire” icons by color and shape — all which determine factors like the age, growth, size, status (active, contained, out, etc), and more.

AIR QUALITY

Wildfires can have a severe impact on the air quality not just in the affected area, but in the communities within a vast area around it. It is vital information that affects public health and safety.

LIGHTNING STRIKES

The legend will also provide the user information on lightning strikes in a particular region. Lightning strikes can, and often have been a catalyst to wildfires so it is important to know where, and how often they are occurring.
