European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS)

Description

The European Forest Fire Information System (EFFIS) was established by the European Commission in collaboration with the national fire administrations to support the services in charge of the protection of forests against fires in the EU and neighbouring countries, and also to provide the EU institutions with harmonized information on forest fires in Europe.

Since 1998, EFFIS is supported by a network of experts.

EFFIS consists of a modular web geographic information system that provides near real-time and historical information on forest fires and forest fires regimes in the European, Middle Eastern and North African regions. Fire monitoring in EFFIS comprises the full fire cycle, providing information on the pre-fire conditions and assessing post-fire damages.

The EFFIS Current Situation Viewer provides access to fire danger forecasts and other relevant map-based information.
