  1. How GIS is Used byCAL FIRE (Rebecca Ferkovich)

  2. Fire Incident Support • Fire Hazard Mapping • CA Fire Plan • SRA Fire Prevention Benefit Fee • Forest & Rangeland Assessments • Forest Practice • Pipeline Safety • ….and more! How GIS is used by CAL FIRE

  3. GIS support duringfire incidents • Assess damage • Supply GIS data library to incident planning ops • Timely imagery provided by USFS EROS - International Charter on Space and Major Disasters Fire Incident Support

  4. Expected likelihood ofburning & fire behavior characteristics, aggregated into classified zones • Spatial data & process rules(fuels, topography, weather,etc) • Forms basis of fire safety laws & requirements for hazard disclosure for real estate transfers Fire Hazard Mapping

  5. Goal: Reduce costs/lossesfrom wild land fire throughFire Prevention & Pre-FirePlanning Activities • GIS use: Identify neededprojects, map/summarizeexisting project data, reportaccomplishments, evaluate values at risk, etc • Cal MAPPER – for Fire Planners – v1/2/3 CA Fire Plan

  6. State Responsibility Area Fire Prevention Benefit Fee (AB X1 29)- July 2011 • Annual fee - habitablestructures within SRA • Requires quality statewide SRA data that supports parcel level “in or out” decisions SRA Fees

  7. Statewide Assessment requiredevery 5 years - used to inform policy and rule making • Priority Landscapes –weighted overlays of assets and threats • Map Viewer online – http://frap.cdf.ca.gov/ priority/default.html Forest & Rangeland Assessments

  8. Spatial data capture / analysis from initial project review through final completion of timber harvesting • Supports regulatory process, delivers info, informs public • Custom maps & web resources(ex: Watershed Mapper – http://egis.fire.ca.gov/watershed_mapper/) Forest Practice

  9. Submissions received by regulated pipeline operators, updated and maintained by GIS Analyst • Positional accuracy of ~100’ (vs. national ~500’) • Uses: Emergency response; track/analyze PS response to CalOES spill notifications; risk-based analysis for inspections State Pipeline Mapping System
