Risk analysis for the wildland interface
Identifying wildfire risk in a community allows public safety agencies to prioritize those risks. This enables wildfire mitigation efforts, planning, and the ability to make data-driven decisions to deploy resources. First, you must acquire information about what is occurring within your community. The data will be used to identify both current risks and historical trends. GIS provides the ability to present this data in a visual perspective that easily communicates the risk within a community. It also allows public safety officials to analyze multiple datasets to determine how these risks will impact citizens, infrastructure, and the environment.
