slide1

What is the Energy Release Component (ERC)?

The Energy Release Component (ERC) is an index of how readily fuels will burn, considering weather, fuel load, and long-term drying of fuels. The ERC is a Fire Danger indicator, used to track seasonal trends in fire conditions, and to establish appropriate firefighter staffing levels.

CONDON WEATHER STATION

  • What is the ERC Graph?

·Tracks seasonal trend in fire potential in local fuels

·Provides comparison to average and extreme historical weather conditions, recent active fire seasons, and past large fires

  • Provides an overall picture of fire weather and potential fire behavior conditions in Northwest Montana

What does the number mean?

Daily fire weather forecasts include the current ERC value. Comparing today’s ERC to historical conditions alerts you to today’s fire danger potential. When ERC is high, expect very active fire behavior, and the possibility of large fire growth.
