Wildfire Risk to Communities

Wildfire Risk to Communities is a free, easy-to-use website with interactive maps, charts, and resources to help communities understand, explore, and reduce wildfire risk. It was created by the USDA Forest Service under the direction of Congress and is designed to help community leaders, such as elected officials, community planners, and fire managers. This is the first time wildfire risk to communities has been mapped nationwide.

This past June, a major wildfire impacted the western subdivisions of Colorado Springs. By July 8th, over $350 million dollars had been spent to control the 17,000 acre fire, 392 homes were lost, and worst of all, 2 of the citizens perished in the inferno. Here is an article from the October 2012 NFPA Journal about the impacted communities.
