How fire risk is measured
The fire hazard forecast is made in 60 forecast zones based on measurements of pine litter moisture, relative air humidity and precipitation, and determines the possibility of a fire on the day it is made. Meteorological measurements are carried out twice a day in several places in each zone. The forecast is made by the State Forests in the period of fire risk – from 1 March to 30 September.
