Application of the wildfire risk assessment framework

Status: 
Action
Dates: 
January, 2015

In 2015, analysts with the Fire Modeling Institute (FMI) continued to be involved with application of a wildfire risk assessment framework developed largely by RMRS scientists from both the Fire, Fuel, and Smoke Science Program and the Human Dimensions Program. The risk assessment framework provides a means to assess the potential risk posed by wildfire to specific highly valued resources and assets (HVRAs) across large landscapes. It also provides a scientifically-based foundation for fire managers to think strategically and proactively about how to best manage fire and fuels on their landscapes in a way that integrates with broader land and resource management goals.
