This layer displays the percent of the population directly affected by wildfire from 2011-2020 and the population change of that area from 2010-2020.
Current Wildland Fire Locations
This layer displays the location of current wildland fire locations. Points are symbolized based on the daily acres burned, and the current fire behavior. Data is updated daily.
Current Wildfire Smoke Density
This layer displays the density of current smoke plumes from wildfires. Data is updated daily.
Fire Stations in the United States includes any location where fire fighters are stationed or based out of, or where equipment that such personnel use in carrying out their jobs is stored for ready use. Fire Departments not having a permanent location are included, in which case their location has been depicted at the city/town hall or at the center of their service area if a city/town hall does not exist. This dataset includes those locations primarily engaged in forest or grasslands fire fighting, including fire lookout towers if the towers are in current use for fire protection purposes. This dataset includes both private and governmental entities. Fire fighting training academies are also included.
The layer displays historic wildland fire perimeters. The Geospatial Multi-Agency Coordination group, or GeoMAC, is an internet-based mapping tool originally designed for fire managers to access online maps of current fire locations and perimeters in the U.S. Perimeters are submitted to GeoMAC by field offices and made available to the public. Perimeter data is not the final or official perimeter for any incident and is provided for informational purposes only. The final official perimeter should be obtained from the host unit which can be determined by looking at the Unit ID for any specific fire.
This dataset contains point features representing building locations of fire stations in the United States, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The purpose of this collection is to represent the fire station locations on general purpose cartographic products. The data includes manned fire stations and buildings from which a fire response occurs, such as a volunteer fire department building to which fire fighters report for duty, but which is not continuously manned. The data includes both private and governmental entities. In some cases, where fire stations are known to exist but could not be located on a specific building, such as on a military base, airport or manufacturing location, a point was placed at the entrance or the general center of the facility or complex. Some fire locations are approximate, most prevalently in rural areas. Fire training facilities are not included unless these locations also have an active fire station. Locations solely for storing or maintaining fire equipment, or fire stations without a permanent location, were generally excluded. The 2020 data update does not include NAICS descriptions that were included in the 2019 release.
