This file represents an aggregated dataset that shows previously active Alerts and Orders in the Province as initiated by the Local Governments or First Nations. Start dates, re-installment dates and All Clear Dates for each evacuation Order and Alert are included in this multipart polygon dataset.
This Alberta Official Statistic describes the number of hectares of land burned from wildfire in Alberta during the fire season which runs from April 1 to October 31 of each year. Alberta Agriculture and Forestry is mandated to control and contain wildfires within the Forest Protection Area of the province. The number of wildfires and the amount of hectares burned vary greatly due to factors such as environmental conditions, response times, resources available for containing fires, and swiftness of detection and containment. Wildfire management practices are important because they protect our forest resources and the communities which depend on them.
This table contains 11592 series, with data for years 2005 - 2014 (not all combinations necessarily have data for all years).

Alberta Wildfire Status Map - an overview of Alberta's current wildfire situation within the province's forest protection areas.
Wildfire Year/dNBR/Mask 1985-2015Wildfire change magnitude 85-15. Spectral change magnitude for wildfires that occurred from 1985 and 2015. The wildfire change magnitude included in this product is expressed via differenced Normalized Burn Ratio (dNBR), computed as the variation between the spectral values before and after the change event. This dataset is composed of three layers: (1) binary wildfire mask, (2) year of greatest wildfire disturbance, and (3) differenced Normalized Burn Ratio (dNBR) transformed for data storage efficiency to the range 0-200.
Wildfire perimeters for the current fire season, including both active and inactive fires, supplied from various sources. The data is refreshed from operational systems nightly. These perimeters are rolled over to Historical Fire Polygons on April 1 of each year Wildfire data may not reflect the most current fire situation, and therefore should only be used for reference purposes. Wildfire data is refreshed when practicable and individual fire update frequency will vary.
Storm surges occur in coastal areas when strong onshore winds and low atmospheric pressure during passing storms raise water levels along the shore above predicted levels. Storm surges occur on all four Canadian coasts (Pacific, Arctic, Atlantic and Great Lakes). The most severe known surges in Canada have been 2 to 3 metres high (well over the head of the average person). Severe storm surges that occur on high tides or during high lake levels can result in flood damage, evacuation of communities and loss of life.
