Wildfire Risk to Communities

Land use planners, fire managers, and elected officials can all use this site to understand, explore, and reduce wildfire risk in their communities.

This free, easy-to-use website provides interactive maps, charts, and resources for the entire United States and can help communities understand, explore, and reduce wildfire risk. It uses the best available science to identify, and provides resources to help communities manage and mitigate, risk.

The tool is intended to be a starting point to help answer questions about community risk. It can help communities answer questions about how their risk compares to other communities in their county, state, or nationally.

  • Prioritize mitigation efforts to communities in a state or county with the greatest wildfire risk.
  • Identify communities where localized wildfire hazard mitigation and planning efforts are most needed.
  • Find resources to help mitigate and manage risk.
