The Role of Real-time Information in Wildfire Preparedness and Response

According to the United States National Interagency Fire Center, over 7.5 million acres of land burned due to wildfires in 2022, a 6% increase from 2021. 

Real-time, publicly available information is critical to federal, state, local and non-profit organizations’ emergency response plans, who depend on this data to collaborate, make critical decisions, and respond to fires quickly and effectively. 

Join officials from Direct Relief and Metro Vancouver as they discuss:
  • How to utilize publicly available information to identify wildfire severity and conduct vulnerability assessments
  • How to develop emergency response plans that keep employees and the community safe
  • The importance of information symmetry between agencies during wildfire response
