Wildfire Suppression Difficulty Index 90th Percentile 2022 (Image Service)

posted on 2024-06-05, 12:41 authored by U.S. Forest Service
Wildfire Suppression Difficulty Index (SDI) 90th Percentile is a rating of relative difficulty in performing fire control work under regionally appropriate fuel moisture and 15 mph uphill winds (@ 20 ft). 

SDI factors in topography, fuels, expected fire behavior under prevailing conditions, fireline production rates in various fuel types with and without heavy equipment, and access via roads, trails, or cross-country travel. SDI does not account for standing snags or other overhead hazards to firefighters, so it is not a firefighter hazard map. It is only showing in relative terms where it is harder or easier to perform suppression work.
