Welcome to FireGrowthModel.ca

FireGrowthModel.ca is home to Prometheus: the Canadian Wildland Fire Growth Simulation Model, and other fire models that utilize the Prometheus COM. Prometheus is the result of a national project endorsed by the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre and its members.

Alberta Agriculture and Forestry is now the lead agency and custodian of Prometheus. The Canadian Forest Service maintains Burn-P3 and Pandora in collaboration with forest and fire management agencies across Canada.

Considerable time and effort are spent to ensure these software applications can be used by fire management agencies across Canada and other interested stakeholders including natural resource managers, planners, and researchers. The lead agencies have also extended support to fire management agencies and researchers outside of Canada.
