Description

During the 1970's, Forestry Canada (then the Canadian Forestry Service) published three wall maps illustrating wildfire occurrence and fire climate patterns that proved very popular among Canadian fire managers. More recently, five wall posters pertaining to the two major subsystems of the Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System (CFFDRS) have been produced that illustrate how fire danger is assessed and wildfire behavior predicted in the boreal forest region of Canada.
