About this app

Wildfires are becoming bigger, more intense, more destructive, and more frequent. We want to make the world a safer place, so we put the power of 21st Century wildfire detection in the palm of your hand.

• We use MODIS and VIIRS satellites to spot, map, and track blazing wildfires around the world.
• We use two NRCAN layers to visualize detected fire and fire perimeters across Canada.
• Control the sensitivity of MODIS and VIIRS blazing fire detection filters yourself.
• We update blazing fire detection around the world twice a day to keep you aware and safe.
• Check detections from previous months – handy for planning your next wilderness hike or canoe trip.
• Not sure you have the latest detections in app? You can update the detections on demand.
• Worried about friends, family, or property in a remote location? Use the search feature to check for blazing fires.
• Worried about your campsite? Use our GPS tool, see your position and spot any blazing fires nearby.
• Need to raise the alarm? Share blazing fire detections on social media, text message, or email.
• Want to report a fire? We show you the location of each blazing fire detection and NRCAN perimeter.

It worked for about 1 week and all of a sudden there are no fires in BC??? The entire province is on fire and this app dosen't show any of them anymore! The specifically is a large one quite close to me right now that I would very much like to be keeping an eye on but even after uninstalling and reinstalling the app, it still shows nothing!

Hi Cyndi, we are sorry for this inconvenience. We experienced a problem with our data ingest system and have since fixed the issue. The app is now functioning normally.

I get nothing but "cannot sync data from server"errors. I'm an American Android user, but I'm in Canada with a working data connection. [Update: it's intermittent. Refresh enough, or wait long enough (?) and it works.]
