Abstract:
This packaged product has been recently updated as of September, 2017 with current LANDSAT and EFRI imagery where available. For all other areas the National Fuels database has been applied. The purpose of this layer is to provide generalized data for the identification of potential hazardous forest types for wildland fire to support implementation of the Provincial Policy Statement 2014 (PPS). Hazardous forest types for wildland fire means forest types assessed as being associated with the risk of high to extreme wildland fire. This data is intended to help inform where further assessment is required and is to be used in conjunction with guidance from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry
