Basic Wildfire Safety Tips

If you see a wildfire and haven't received evacuation orders yet, call 9-1-1. Don't assume that someone else has already called.

If ordered to evacuate during a wildfire, do it immediately- make sure and tell someone where you are going and when you have arrived.

Many communities have text or email alerting systems for emergency notifications.To find out what alerts are available in your area, search the Internet with your town, city, or county name and the word “alerts.”

If you or someone you are with has been burned, call 9-1-1 or seek help immediately; cool and cover burns to reduce chance of further injury or infection.

Forestry Fire Management Information System (FMIS) Mapping Tool  in Florida

Brought to you by the Florida Forest Service. The Florida Forest Service was one of the first in the nation to offer an internet-based mapping tool that allows the general public to access information concerning fire management activity on a state wide basis from one location.

This tool is available to assist Florida Forest Service cooperators as well as the public at large in assessing what their local concerns might be at any time relating to forest/brush fires in Florida. Using this tool, it is possible to see where all existing/active wildfires are in Florida, where all open burn authorizations are or are planned to be on any particular day, and other incidents that the Florida Forest Service has responsibility for resolving. These data are real time. The map will update as incidents occur, so it is very likely that the map at 8:00 AM will be very different from the map at 10:00 AM.
