Each year over the last 25 years, about 7, forest fires have occurred. The total area burned varies widely from year to year, but averages about million hectares annually.; Only 3% of all wildland fires that start each year in Canada grow to more than hectares in area.

With the warming climate leading to extreme fires and fire seasons that are nearly year round, it is inevitable that deadly fires will strike many wildland-urban interface communities. Call the Fire Line at (FIRE) as soon as you spot one. Current wildfire conditions.

The field of fire management has generated a terminology to express the role of fire in wildfire suppression. Author: Publisher: ISBN: MSU Category: Forest fires. Key message: We have explored the impacts of forest thinning on wildland fire behavior using a process based model.

Simulating different degrees of thinning, we found out that forest thinning should be conducted cautiously as there could be a wide range of outcomes depending upon the post-thinning states of fuel availability, fuel connectivity, fuel moisture and micrometeorological features.

The National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy was finalized in to provide a strategic framework for comprehensively addressing wildland fire issues and management utilizing an “All Hands, All Lands” approach across all landscapes and communities at risk in the United States.

The Cohesive Strategy is by far, the most. Forest thinning is an important management tool to prevent high intensity crown fires [].A century of successful fire suppression in the western United States has resulted in a massive fuel accumulation, increasing fire danger in many parts of the country [].More than 95% of the wildland fires in western ecosystems are suppressed successfully in the phase of initial attack, where their sizes.
