Municipalities, landowners, planning agencies, and communities must adapt to wildfire by developing and implementing policies to address hazards while identifying and acknowledging risk. Land use policy, development and building standards, and design criteria are all addressed through hands-on hazard evaluation and risk assessment, utilizing modeling, expert knowledge of fire behavior and best practices. and a thorough understanding of the fire environment surrounding your community.
We can guide plan development, including Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPPs), Hazards and Risk Assessments, and individual property vegetation and fire hazard mitigation plans.
We assist fire agencies in development of wildfire hazard standards and code adoption, municipalities on land use and development practives to minimize risk, and homeowner groups on bylaw and policy adoption to address individual properties and open spaces.
