Forest fires caused negligently by the population have become a major problem in Germany. Often it is because the population is not aware of the danger. Therefore, the aim of our initiative is to inform the population more and to simplify access to information.

With this plugin, the forest fire danger level for every city in Germany can be displayed easily and free of charge. For this purpose, you can choose between 3 designs.

In addition to the city, the design and also the headline of the widget can be adapted.

The plugin is part of an overall asset to spread the forest fire danger levels more among the population.

Waldbrände die fahrlässig durch die Bevölkerung ausgelöst werden, sind mittlerweile ein großes Problem in Deutschland. Oft liegt es daran, dass die Bevölkerung sich der Gefahr nicht bewusst ist. Deshalb ist Ziel unserer Initiative die Bevölkerung wieder mehr zu informieren und den Zugang zu den Informationen zu vereinfachen.

Mit diesem Plugin kann die Waldbrandgefahrenstufe für jede Stadt in Deutschland einfach und kostenlos dargestellt werden. Hierfür kann zwischen 3 Designs gewählt werden.

Zusätzlich zu der Stadt, kann das Design und auch die Überschrift des Widgets angepasst werden.

Das Plugin ist Teil eines gesamten Assets, um die Waldbrandgefahrenstufen wieder mehr unter der Bevölkerung zu verbreiten.


  • Default Design, displaying the lowest danger level
  • Small Design
  • Detailed representation with danger level 4, one of the highest.


Does the link to the website have to be displayed?

Yes, this is an absolute must, otherwise the requirements of the data providers are not met.

Why does the widget sometimes take so long to load?

The data is retrieved freshly from the data providers when it is loaded, as it is not allowed to cache the data in order to avoid displaying incorrect data. This processing can take up to 0.5 seconds.

Why is this only the data from the DWD and not from the federal states themselves?

In Germany, there is a mess of responsibilities for the forest fire levels of some regions. However, the DWD is the origin of all data. Slight deviations may occur. Should this be the case, please contact me for support Support.
