The problem that is rapidly getting worse.
Wildfires pose a serious threat to human life, wildlife and property.
As of October 1, 2020, over 44,000 wildfires have burned nearly 7.7 million acres causing an estimated $150 billion in damage.
Currently, most fires are reported by 911 calls, commercial flights, or fire lookout stations. This inconsistent approach lets some wildfires go undiscovered for hours or even days.
Existing software solutions rely on low-quality data that refreshes sporadically between 12 and 48 hours allowing the same problems as legacy solutions to persist.
We use 12 data sources and U-Nets to ensure our fire prediction algorithm beats the industry standard by every available benchmark.
Fion is the only solution offering fire prediction, fire detection, spread prediction and destruction estimation in a single application.
Understanding the different factors that influence the severity of wildfires allows us to strategically source data and use our proprietary machine learning model to predict wildfires before they happen.
