Wildfire basics for professionals: Land-Use and Community Planners

Wildfire Basics for Professionals: Resiliency for Land-Use and Community Planners

This 2-pager is a great reference for land-use and community planners to put firewise concepts to use while planning for the long-term resiliency of any community that is in the planning stages.

Planners are an important part of a Fire-adapted community where informed and prepared citizens collaboratively plan and take action to safely co-exist with wildfire. Using planning methods proven to increase community survivability and resiliency during wildfires tend to be very cost effective when compared to retroactive solutions to mitigate community damages to wildfire.

We recommend all community and land-use planners take these firewise details into consideration to promote the long-term preparedness and safety of communities, especially ones located in areas of high fire risk.
