    The Fire Monitoring, Accounting and Reporting System (FireMARS), developed by the Canadian Forest Service and the CCRS, uses satellite data and fire information to track area burned and carbon emissions from wildland fires. The emissions information goes into comprehensive national and international carbon emissions reports. Operate safely and effectively in a wildland/urban interface incident by using situation awareness, performing structure triage, using pre-planning tools, having a basic understanding of fire behavior, and using strategy and tactics unique to the wildland/urban interface environment. A wildfire, wildland fire or rural fire is an uncontrolled fire in an area of combustible vegetation occurring in rural areas. Depending on the type of vegetation present, a wildfire can also be classified more specifically as a brush fire, bushfire (in Australia), desert fire, forest fire, grass fire, hill fire, peat fire, vegetation fire, or veld fire.   The Wildland Fire Incident Management Field Guide states, references, or supplements wildland fire incident management and operational standards established by the National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG).
