Incident map


Incidents on FireLens.com are geocoded, that is they are tagged with a longitude and a latitude. That information is used here to present a Google Maps geographical map of all incidents covered by FireLens.com. Each marker displayed on the map is clickable.

Please note that the map below might take a long time to load. Also note that not all incident markers appear on the map when the map is zoomed out; you must therefore zoom in (using the + button on the map) to get closer and see more incidents.

About

Sylvain Pedneault

Having discovered the domain of firefighting through photography in 2002, I founded FireLens.com as well as many other related projects over the years. I eventually became a firefighter, then promoted lieutenant, and finally captain. I also specialize in firefighter health and safety. In other words, I keep busy! ;)
