Simulations can be completed in less than a minute and quickly shared with other operational staff

Quickly determine the path of a fire and calculate potential impacts

Everything you need for wildfire risk forecasting, spread predictions, risk mitigation, fire behavior analysis in one platform.

When wildfires occur, it is important to quickly understand where the fire is going and what it will impact. FireSim provides an on-demand capability to create a spread prediction and obtain detailed information on potential impacts within seconds of incident notification. Impact analysis including  population, structures and buildings, critical facilities and company assets, is automatically undertaken with each prediction – all within 30 seconds. This information is critical for infrastructure protection, response and resource prioritization.

1

Deterministic & Probabilistic Simulations

FireSim includes several advanced prediction models to identify where a fire will spread, and what areas are vulnerable. Probabilistic models allow the user to incorporate a measure of uncertainty by varying key inputs for simulations, often providing a better comfort level during complex incidents. Users can switch between different simulation modes and generate new simulations within seconds, with a suite of tools to review and compare outputs.
2

Initial Attack Assessment

Each simulation assesses the likelihood of the fire escaping initial attack based on the spread, growth and suppression difficulty characteristics. This metric aids decision makers in determining which fire is more of a concern and where resources may be prioritized based on the spread and damage potential.
3

Automatic Impact Analysis

Potential impacts of a fire are automatically calculated for each simulation using detailed data for population, buildings and critical facilities – all within 30 seconds. FireSim uses a comprehensive integrated database that affords consequence analysis and tools to review and query potential impacts.
4

Advanced WUI Encroachment

Advanced urban encroachment algorithms are employed to ensure that an accurate analysis of WUI and urban fringe impacts are captured. This is a key element of accurately assessing potential impacts for a fire. Our advanced encroachment algorithms are based on the analysis and calibration with actual damage assessment data compiled over the past 13 years.
5

Real-Time Detection Data Calibration

Through the integration with real-time detection data, FireSim is able to calibrate simulations on-the-fly to incorporate observed field observations. Our solution has unique integration with high resolution detection sources to facilitate this analysis. Machine Learning models are employed to analyze and integrate this detailed observation data into model prediction.
6

Detailed Simulation Reports

Detailed reports documenting the input weather and landscape conditions, ground and canopy fuels, fuel moisture and fire behavior outputs are automatically created for each simulation. This includes a summary one-pager and a detailed multi-page report. The reports are idea for sharing prediction data externally with others while not requiring access to FireSim.

Automatic impact and consequence analysis for your buildings, population, critical facilities and assets.

Understanding the potential impacts and consequences of a wildfire is essential to support agency decision making, especially when multiple incidents occur at a time.

FireSim automatically conducts impact analysis with each simulation, providing results within a minute. This includes information on which asset is impacted, when it is impacted, the level of impact. A building loss factor is also applied to determine the number of structures destroyed in addition to those threatened. Understanding potential impacts, when and where, is key information for fire professionals to determine the priorities and response tactics.

Integrate with your CAD and IRWIN for automatic incident spread predictions

FireSim provides automatic spread predictions within seconds of receiving incident notifications from agency CAD systems.  Through seamless integration with the Integrated Reporting of Wildland-Fire Information (IRWIN) federal system, FireSim automatically receives incident notifications for all federal agencies and any state agency that is part of the interagency CAD system. This allows FireSim to track all active incidents in real-time and provide prediction capabilities for every incident.

FireSim Mobile gives your users access to critical information in the field

A native mobile application provides simulation capabilities while in the field. Supporting both iOS and Android, remote users can retrieve existing simulations, or request new simulations within seconds. New simulations are seamlessly synchronized with a cloud-base repository sharing data with all permissions users. Each simulation includes impact analysis and an Initial Attack Assessment, identifying if the simulated fire is likely to escape initial attack. This allows managers to set response priorities based fire potential rankings.

Users are also able to add field observations with photos and attach them to simulations for viewing across all platforms by permission users. The mobile app provides in-the-field users access to simulation information at the touch of a button.
