Uttarakhand’s Rudraprayag Forest Division Launches App to Monitor Forest Fires

For real-time monitoring of forest fires, the Rudraprayag division, Uttarakhand, has launched a mobile application. Called Forest Fire Rudraprayag, the application will help officials monitor such incidents better with real-time location of active fires on Google Map. Using the application, people can report forest fires through geo-tagged images. ‘Our main aim with this application is to reduce the response time. We have mapped our fire crew stations, plantations, van panchayats along with type of forests. As soon as a new fire is detected by Forest Survey of India, we can put the input received from FSI on our system and know the exact location of the fire, whether it is in a pine forest or a plantation or civil forest,’ said Vaibhav Singh, Divisional Forest Officer of Rudraprayag division.
