NEW WEB BASED SANTA ANA WILDFIRE THREAT INDEX MAP

SANTA ANA WILDFIRE THREAT INDEX


A web-based weather monitoring system designed to “quantify” the risks of wildfires during Santa Ana windstorms will equip first responders and the public with the information they need to be prepared for an emergency, officials said Wednesday.

U.S. Forest Service rangers, along with representatives from San Diego Gas & Electric and UCLA, jointly developed the Santa Ana Wildfire Threat Index, which was unveiled during a briefing at the USFS's Southern California Geographic Area Coordination Center in Riverside.

The Santa Ana Wildfire Threat Index is available 24/7 at http://psgeodata.fs.fed.us/sawti/

Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
