    Some 39 forest fires continue to burn in Ontario, Canada, this week, according to the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry. Some of the most notable fires included the Lady Evelyn Fire. The Canadian Forest Fire Behaviour Prediction System (FBP) is a complex system that mathematically expresses and integrates many of the major fuel, weather and topographic features that influence fire behaviour. The FBP System Interactive Training and Reference program uses the interaction of video, audio, text, graphics, photos and animation Author: K. G. Hirsch.

    The Federal Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre (CIFFC) provides operational fire-control services and links to all provincial and territorial fire agencies. During a typical year there are over 9, forest fires in Canada, burning an average of million hectares (ha) or 9, square miles (25, km 2). The number of fires and area. As a means of verification, large forest fire (size > ha) statistics from the Canadian Large Fire Data Base (LFDB; Stocks et al. ) were used in a composite-plus-scale analysis (Mann et al. ; Lee et al. ). The LFDB contains information on start location, estimated ignition date, cause, and final size of each fire.

    Population Source: Statistics Canada. Fire Death Rate in Ontario: Structure Fires The majority of the fire deaths occur in structures. The structure fire death rate is the number of structure fire fatalities per million population. In there were fire deaths in structures, the population was million, the fire death rate was Fire occurrence and behaviour in Mediterranean-type ecosystems strongly depend on the air temperature and wind conditions, the amount of fuel load and the drought conditions that drastically increase flammability, particularly during the summer period. In order to study the fire danger due to climate change for these ecosystems, the meteorologically based Fire Weather Index (FWI) can be used.

The statistical data are presented separately for each province or other major jurisdiction, and for Canada as a whole.

The statistical data are presented separately for each province or other major jurisdiction, and for Canada as a whole. Where possible, a comparable average value for the previous 10 years is listed beside each.

The Canadian National Fire Database (CNFDB) is a collection of forest fire data from various sources; these data include fire locations (point data) and fire perimeters (polygon data) as provided by Canadian fire management agencies (provinces, territories, and Parks Canada).

The Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System is the principal source of intelligence for fire management agencies in Canada and the most widely used system of its kind 1984-1987 book the world.

Used to drive fire prediction and computer modelling of fire behaviour, it includes two subsystems: The Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index System provides an estimate of fire danger across the country based on.

The Canadian Wildland Fire Information System monitors fire danger conditions and fire occurrence across Canada.

Daily weather conditions are collected from across Canada and used to produce fire weather and fire behavior maps. In addition, satellites are used to detect fires, and reported fire locations are collected from fire management agencies.

The Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System (CFFDRS) rates the risk of forest fires across the country. Fire danger includes various factors in the fire environment, such as ease of ignition and difficulty of control.

Founded inthe Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs (CAFC) is an independent, non-profit organization representing approximately 3, fire departments across Canada.

The primary mission of CAFC is to promote the highest standard of public safety in an ever changing and increasingly complex world to ensure the protection of the public. Study area. Our study area is the km 2 fire region of the 1 km 2 province of Ontario in central Canada (see Fig.

1).The fire region is formally designated by the Forest Fires Prevention Act (Revised statutes of Ontario ), provincial government legislation that pertains to forest fires and assigns the responsibility for fire management to the Aviation and Forest Fire.

Environmetrics 21 (): Crossref, Google Scholar. Wildland fire is a dominant disturbance regime in Canadian forests, particularly in the boreal forest region where fire is a process critical to the very existence of primary boreal species such as pine, spruce, and aspen and is responsible for shaping landscape diversity and influencing energy flows and biogeochemical cycling (Stocks et al.

Modern fire management programmes in Canada now balance the protection of human lives and property with an awareness and consideration of the natural ecological role of fire.

Canadian Forest Fire Statistics. Forest fire statistics have been archived in Canada since and, within limits, this extensive record permits a general analysis of.

[1] A Large Fire Database (LFDB), which includes information on fire location, start date, final size, cause, and suppression action, has been developed for all fires larger than ha in area for Canada for the – period.

The LFDB represents only % of the total number of Canadian fires during this period, the remaining % of fires being suppressed while. Similar long-term fire statistics for Russia currently do not exist for comparison.

The C emissions rate (t ha −1 of burned area) was 53% higher in the Canadian study area due to higher pre-burn forest floor fuel loads and higher fuel consumption by crown fires.

However, the Russian study area had much higher total C emissions (per M ha. COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

The Largest Fires In Canadian History. The largest fire in Canadian history in terms of area was the Northwest Territories fires. The firestorms swept across 3, hectares (ha) of forest, but fortunately did not result in any deaths.

To keep you in the know, NFPA studies fire data in detail to provide insights about the overall fire problem, firefighter fatalities and injuries, major fire causes, fire protection systems, and many other topics. Through the Fire Protection Research Foundation we work with organizations around the world to investigate emerging fire safety hazards and solutions.

These systems are among others the National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS) in USA (US Forest Service, ) and the Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System (CFFDRS) in Canada (Canadian Forest Service, ).

The CFFDRS is also used in Alaska and in some other parts of the world, including Europe and Asia. Both systems are based primarily. One of the largest fires in recent history was in when a fire tore through Maine and New Brunswick, Canada, burning 3 million acres of forest.
