Community Wildfire Resilience

Featured project partners

Supporting counties, fire districts, and municipalities at every step

No matter where you are in the community planning cycle, we harmonize publicly-available information to help you achieve urban and wildland resilience faster across ownerships. We are designing a new product for community wildfire resilience. Click below to learn more!

Evaluate

Assess risk to people, properties, water and more with local, current fuelscape and wildfire hazard data. With fire modeling from Pyrologix, a Vibrant Planet company, predict the impact of disturbance and build a quantitative wildfire risk assessment.

Design

Create a living Community Wildfire Protection Plan. Collaboratively build treatment scenarios balanced to your unique priorities and weigh the impact of alternative fuels reduction actions. Design a plan using outcome-based metrics.

Implement

Maintain publicly available community hazard data and continuously support home hardening and hazardous fuels reduction. Build sequenced projects based on your budget and workforce constraints. Download projects into field applications for productive layout and contract compliance.

Learn

Monitor resilience trends and management outcomes over time, and report resilience gains to project funders, supervisors, partners and your community.

Adapt

Change happens – like adjusted budgets, evolving community needs, buildings growing older, or developments like unplanned wildfire. Meanwhile, vegetation grows, planned interventions are completed, and risk shifts across your landscape.

We refresh our data annually, enabling you to adjust your plans in light of changing conditions or priorities.
