Alberta Wildfire has launched a brand new application for Albertans and those who want to know more about wildfire in the province.
The new application has many features, including the ability to search for specific information such as fire bans and advisories across the province. It allows the user to select different map layers that show fire danger ratings or even the location of mountain pine beetles in Alberta.
The new intuitive application provides wildfire information in real time, in a one-stop shop format. By using the GPS function, users can instantly know if a fire ban is in place in their area or if there is an active wildfire nearby. They can also get a provincial look at the current wildfire situation with the home view. Users can subscribe to forest area notifications and stay on top of emerging situations in areas of interest.
