Fine Fuel Moisture Code (FFMC)

Having trouble loading the image? go to the original source

The FFMC values shown on the map are numerical ratings of the moisture content of litter and other cured fine fuels. The FFMC indicates the relative ease of ignition and flammability of fine fuels. Thus, the FFMC is used as an indicator of ignition potential or the potential for fires to start and spread in the area. (Fine Fuels: Slash fuels, grassland, lalang, bushes etc).

For the interpretation of the map, please refer to the table below :-

Class-Ignition PotentialInterpretation
LowLow probability of fire starts.
MediumModerate probability of fire starts in areas of local dryness.
HighGrass fuels becoming easily ignitable. Higher probability of fire starts.
ExtremeGrass fuels highly flammable. Very high probability of fire starts.
