Wildfire Danger Assessments

Find out the current risk of wildfire in your area

What they are and how to stay alert

When Scotland is at high threat of wildfires, we alert the public and partners through social media and this website. This will detail the areas across Scotland most likely to be affected.   

In partnership with the Scottish Wildfire Forum, we will alert the public to the threat of wildfires by issuing Wildfire Danger Assessments.  

Before igniting any flames in a rural or outdoor setting, we encourage everyone to check which area of Scotland may be at threat of wildfires.

If a threat is in place, please refrain from igniting any flames.
