WHAT IS A WILDFIRE?WILDFIRES ARE ALSO SOMETIMES CALLED FOREST FIRES e-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

WHAT IS A WILDFIRE?WILDFIRES ARE ALSO SOMETIMES CALLED FOREST FIRES Wildfires are uncontrolled fires that burn grass, shrubs, trees and other vegetation. e-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

WHAT IS A WILDFIRE?WILDFIRES ARE ALSO SOMETIMES CALLED FOREST FIRES Wildfires are uncontrolled fires that burn grass, shrubs, trees and other vegetation. They can cause major losses in wildlife (plants and animals) e-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

THREE TYPES OF WILDFIREe-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

THREE TYPES OF WILDFIREe-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

SURFACE FIRE This is the most common type of wildfire and burns along the surface of the ground.

e-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

GROUND FIRE Ground fires burn below the surface of the ground in the soil and sometimes in peat.THREE TYPES OF WILDFIRE

THREE TYPES OF A WILDFIREe-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

CROWN FIRESFires burning in the tops of the trees. Crown fires spread very quickly and are very dangerous.

WHAT CAUSES A WILDFIRE?e-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

WHAT CAUSES A WILDFIRE?MOST WILDFIRES ARE CAUSED BY HUMAN ACTIVITYe-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

WHAT CAUSES A WILDFIRE?MOST WILDFIRES ARE CAUSED BY HUMAN ACTIVITY

Starting campfires in the wrong places and/or not putting them out properly

e-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

WHAT CAUSES A WILDFIRE?MOST WILDFIRES ARE CAUSED BY HUMAN ACTIVITY

Starting campfires in the wrong places and/or not putting them out properlyDropping litter sunlight shining through glass bottles can cause fires to start

WHAT CAUSES A WILDFIRE? LIGHTNING STRIKES e-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

WHAT CAUSES A WILDFIRE? LIGHTNING STRIKES e-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

Some wildfires are caused by lightning strikes these wildfires usually occur when it has been very warm and dry

WHAT CAUSES A WILDFIRE?DURING A HEAT WAVE, THELAND CAN BECOME VERY DRYAND EVEN THE SMALLEST SPARK CAN START A WILDFIRE

DONT LIGHT FIRES WHEN IT IS OR HAS BEEN WARM OR DRY!e-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

WHAT HAPPENS DURING WILDFIRES?FIRE STARTS TO SPREAD AND GETS OUT OF CONTROLe-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

ANIMALS MAY TRY TO ESCAPE AND/OR THEIR HABITAT MIGHT BE DESTROYED e-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

WHAT HAPPENS DURING WILDFIRES?

e-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

Plants may be destroyed completely or may be damaged and need a long time to recover.WHAT HAPPENS DURING WILDFIRES?

e-Learning for the Prevention, Preparedness and Response to Natural Disasters

Entire forests may be destroyed and it takes hundreds of years for mature forests to grow backWHAT HAPPENS DURING WILDFIRES?
