Fire Information for Resource Management System (FIRMS) US/Canada

Associated Agencies

National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA), U.S. Forest Service

The Fire Information for Resource Management System (FIRMS) US/Canada is a joint effort by NASA and the U.S. Forest Service to provide access to low latency satellite imagery and science data products from earth observation system satellite assets to identify the location, extent, and intensity of wildfire activity and its effects.

FIRMS US/Canada tools and applications provide geospatial data, products, and services to support strategic fire management needs of U.S. and Canadian agencies and inform the general public.

FIRMS US/Canada is enabled by data and applications provided by NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS), including NASA’s Land, Atmosphere Near real-time Capability for EOS (LANCE), as well as data from the direct readout community and technologies facilitated by the NASA Direct Readout Laboratory.
