WILDFIRE SITUATIONAL AWARENESS

RELIABLE DATA WILL IMPROVE SAFETY, REDUCE POWER RELATED FIRES, AND PROTECT ASSETS

Transferring real-time, accurate weather data from weather stations to decision-makers is what FTS has been doing with wildfire services for the past 40 years. As 95% of power utility wildfires are ignited by distribution lines there is a need and demand for additional situational awareness in the power utility industry when it comes to wildfire risk assessment and management.

Once a wildfire is ignited, the wildfire behavior will be determined by weather, topography and fuel (vegetation). Valuable weather data via weather stations in remote areas and/or attached to distribution lines can provide enhanced field awareness related to wildfires. This critical fire monitoring data can help protect people, infrastructure, assets and make our communities more resilient to wildfire threats. Many of the same weather monitoring and situational awareness solutions used by USA Wildfire Agencies can be readily adapted to the power utility industry, and FTS can show you how.
