Florida's Wildland Fire Risk Assessment System (FRAS)

Florida's Wildland Fire Risk Assessment System (FRAS)

The Florida Forest Service's Wildland Fire Risk Assessment System (FRAS) is a powerful GIS tool that can assist emergency managers, planners, government officials and others in becoming familiar with wildland fire areas of concern that they should be aware of, and what mitigation application could best serve them when addressing these challenges.

There are three required software packages necessary to run the application:

  • ESRI's ArcGIS Desktop 9.3
  • Spatial Analyst extension (not required to view data but necessary for any data changes)
  • FLAMMAP (this software is public domain)
