How Does the M.D. Measure Fire Hazards?
The Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority uses a tool called the Fire Weather Index System published by Alberta Environment Sustainable Resource Development to measure and forecast fire hazard conditions in the M.D. It is based on weather data and takes into account everything from temperature and wind conditions to relative humidity and moisture levels in the ground and fine fuels such as grass.
