WILDFIRE GPS COLLECTION AND MAPPING
TimberNorth has the capability to send personnel and equipment out to a wildfire in order to collect GPS data on wildfire boundary, catguard and camp locations. Being directly on the scene enables us to provide current and accurate data to the emergency response team.
FIRESMART PLANNING AND SUPERVISION
Wildfire is a natural part of the landscape - it promotes diversity and provides a source for nutrient cycling. However, these advantages are not seen in such a positive light when we incorporate our homes into this landscape. The members of TimberNorth can ease this transition in the form of FireSmart planning. We can aid you by incorporating many facets of this program into your private home or community.
FOREST FUEL ASSESSMENTS
By evaluating the potential for wildfire ignition and spread through forest fuel assessments, you will be better equipped to manage suppression capabilities and threats to important values whether it be timber, equipment or communities. The qualified staff at TimberNorth have a surplus of years of experience within the fire industry. Our accomplished professionals have a strong understanding of fire behaviour and can apply their knowledge to a management plan through the use of these assessments.
