The Fire Information Engine Toolkit

Even in highly fire-prone areas, there are many steps that property-owners and communities can take to reduce fire risk. However, identifying the fire hazards for a specific property or neighborhood can be difficult because the public often does not have access to relevant information. The Fire Information Engine Toolkit has been developed to help homeowners and communities better understand fire hazards at a parcel level using a science-based wildfire hazard assessment and interactive web-based mapping application. Other links include up-to-the-minute wildfire news and tools for researchers.
