This fire note is one of eight that aims to summarise the findings of Hub research in a way that is useful to fire managers.
FireTools Cloud is an online tool to help managers understand how vulnerable a forest is to fire. Colour-coded maps show when a particular area should, or shouldn’t, be burned. If a bushfire is predicted or you are planning a hazard reduction burn (HRB), you can upload data to FireTools and then download information about the area’s vegetation. The tool analyses fire history and vegetation data to calculate a biodiversity threshold status, based on ecological fire intervals.
