|summary:||ECCDA Forecast Summaries combine portions of several WFO Fire Weather Planning. Forecasts (FWF) into a single product that contains fewer weather parameters|
|accessinformation:||Emergency Communications Center Dispatch Area (ECCDA) shapefiles were physically created in early 2006 by Daniel E. Rankin, USFS Fire & Aviation Management, GIS Specialist, McClellan, CA. Comments: California Fire Weather Web Page|
The ECCDA forecasts are mainly used for radio broadcast at all of the CA Inter-Agency Emergency Command Centers (ECCs) and National Forest Communication Centers in California. The ECCDA forecast resulted from requests for a more generalized fire weather forecast suitable for agency radio broadcasts by land management and fire suppression agencies serving California in 2005. The ECCDAs were implemented for California in 2006. Some of the ECC areas were served by two to four NWS offices, so the ECCDAs offer one place for them to get the weather data for their areas. ECCDA Forecast Summaries combine portions of several WFO Fire Weather Planning Forecasts (FWF) into a single product that contains fewer weather parameters and a discussion for the area. These once or twice-daily fire agency radio broadcasts are critical to relaying life saving information to fire fighting crews in the field.
The California Fire Weather Web page, including the ECCDAs, allows quick and easy access to interagency fire weather information for California on a single page.
