Get data on areas where outdoor fires are not permitted. This dataset shows areas where outdoor fires are restricted in accordance with the Forest Fires Prevention Act. There are two reasons why a restricted fire zone is in effect: * outdoor conditions are extremely dry * the number of fires occurring has stretched firefighting resources to capacity A restricted fire zone is a temporary measure for extreme situations and is lifted as soon as conditions permit. The Forest Fire Info Map shows active fires, current fire danger and restricted fire zones in place due to high fire danger.
Get data on fire response plan area boundaries and recommended response types for wildfires. This dataset shows the boundaries of fire response plan areas and provides the recommended response type that corresponds to the official fire response plan for each area. Fire response types include: * full response * modified response * monitored response * prescribed fire The Forest Fire Info Map shows active fires, current fire danger and restricted fire zones in place due to high fire danger.
This dataset shows the locations of ignition points for forest fires less than 40 hectares in size. Fires that grow larger than 40 hectares are mapped in the Fire Disturbance Area dataset. The Forest Fire Info Map shows active fires, current fire danger and restricted fire zones in place due to high fire danger.
Fire management agreements divide land into 4 areas: * Crown Protection Area (CPA): The Crown is responsible for responding to all fires in the CPA * Municipal Protection Area (MPA): The municipality is responsible for responding in the MPA * Federal Protection Area (FPA): The federal government is responsible for responding in the FPA * Northern Fire Protection Area (NFPA): The local fire department (mostly in unorganized areas) is responsible for responding to all incidents and the suppression of fires in the NFPA *[CPA]: Crown Protection Area *[FPA]: Federal Protection Area *[NFPA]: Northern Fire Protection Area *[MPA]: Municipal Protection Area
A Fire Disturbance Area represents the mapped exterior perimeter of a forest fire. Mapping is derived from a variety of sources, such as GPS points and digitized paper maps. Prior to 1998, only fires greater than 200 hectares were mapped. Since 1998, fires greater than 40 hectares have been mapped.
Facilities used by MNRF's Aviation Forest Fire and Emergency Services branch. This dataset is used to support aviation forest fire and AFFES business operations. *[MNRF]: Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry *[AFFES]: Aviation Forest Fire and Emergency Services
Most of these events involved community evacuations, significant structural loss and/or involvement of a Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) Emergency Response Officer. Events include those assigned to MNR by an Order-In-Council under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act as well as events where MNR provided requested emergency response assistance. These events fall into one of ten type categories: * dam failure * drought /low water * erosion * flood * forest fire * soil and bedrock instability * Petroleum Resource Center event * EMO requested assistance * continuity of operations event * other requested assistance This product requires the use of GIS software. *[MNR]: Ministry of Natural Resources *[GIS]: geographic information system
This spatial data identifies breeding zones used by forest managers and forest genetic associations to manage provincial forest genetic assets. The data: * shows the boundaries of breeding zones * identifies the primary or target species within each zone Species are associated with certain breeding programs, seed orchards and progeny (descendant) testing installations.
Get data on boundaries of local climatic areas used for forest fire weather forecasting. This dataset shows the boundaries of administrative areas used for forest fire weather forecasting. North of the French River, boundaries correspond closely with Environment Canada’s areas for public weather forecasting. South of the French River, 25 Environment Canada areas are combined into six larger areas for provincial forecasting.
An abiotic damage event is a non-biological event -- such as wind or an ice storm -- that has damaged areas of forested land. Abiotic damage event information is mainly used to: * generate summary maps for these events at a general or provincial scale * monitor the extent of damage for forest fire prevention purposes * calculate gross timber volume loss estimates caused by these events Instructions for downloading this dataset: * select the link below and scroll down the metadata record page until you find Transfer Options in the Distribution Information section * select the link beside the Data for download label * you must provide your name, organization and email address in order to access the dataset This product requires the use of GIS software. *[GIS]: geographic information system
