Dewberry’s new Wildfire Risk Model aims to provide guidance for communities facing greater incidence of wildfires due to climate change.

Dewberry developed a new Wildfire Risk Model that incorporates dozens of layers of geospatial information to assess and communicate wildfire risk. The tool will come in handy for local, state and federal agencies as well as insurance companies and homeowners.

"Climate change and the urbanization of forested areas have increased the occurrence of wildfires in the United States, putting more properties at risk," says Laurel McGinley, senior associate at Dewberry. "The Wildfire Risk Model will help communities and companies identify the local level of risk and identify strategies to mitigate risk."

The tool provides detail at 30-meter resolution to provide address-level assessments. A broad range of elements can be analyzed such as fuel, weather, slope, topography, wind pattern and fire history.
