Users will also be able to access current information about any open burning prohibitions, including campfire bans.

The app features a “Report a Fire” function that will automatically generate map coordinates of your current location. Provincial Wildfire Reporting Centre staff will ask for these coordinates when the user reports a wildfire. This feature also indicates what sort of questions a person may be asked when reporting a wildfire.
