Definition for Response Levels

Response levels are established to assist fire managers in determining an appropriate response to a new fire report. These are based upon Burning Index and Energy Release Component and are calculated daily. The range of values of each index is separated by decision points, resulting in four classifications: Light, Medium, and Full. Each Response level dictates a pre-planned "run card" consisting of a certain configuration of resouces.
