About Us

Forest Fires are a natural event, essential to the health of our Forests. They can also be dangerous to people, property, and wild-life. FireFringe™ leverages remote sensing satellites to detect, and inform you about blazing fires globally. FireFringe™ was invented by people who know forests, working with people who know fires. Scroll down to learn more.



FireFringe™ Mobile

Spots burning hot areas around the world like forest fires, grass fires, volcanic lava or hot areas caused by oil rigs, smelters and other industries. We keep you informed, with up to six days of historical blazing fire data available. FireFringe™ Mobile gives you control of the sensitivity of the spotting tools from high sensitivity to low sensitivity. Stay informed, stay safe.

FireFringe Hotspots

We use satellites to make a visual map of the blazing fire

We update these maps regularly (weather permitting) and date the hotspots

You can see how the fire is spreading through the area over time

FireFringe Fire Location Highlighter

We use our technology to adapt the satellite imagery to highlight fire locations

If there is a fire in your area, this will help you see the smoke and fire locations
