Drone Mapping

Throughout the month of May, Clearwater County Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Team will be flying drones in the following areas: 
  • Nordegg 
  • West Country Subdivision
  • North Saskatchewan River Park
  • Echo Canyon
  • Horburg
  • Misty Valley
  • Saunders
  • Woodland Estates
  • Pine Ridge 
The data collected will be used for pre-planning in the event of an interface fire, it will expedite the planning process and thereby enable efficient response operations. 

The ideal time to complete this mapping is after the snow has melted and before the trees are full of leaves, so that the images taken show the different wildland fuels before the leaves cover the understory. 

You can expect to see a Clearwater County drone in areas listed above, between May 1 - 31 (weather permitting), and with potential to be extended depending on the fullness of leaves on trees.
