Wildfire Risk Assessment Guide
Entry ID: UFL_wildfireriskassessmentguide

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Two data subsets were developed to assign risk values to individual WUI homes:
1. index values for plant communities, defensible space and structural
characteristics; 2. BEHAVE fire prediction system estimates for rate of spread
and fireline intensity for dry fuel conditions in each of the southern fuel
models, modified for different defensible space clearings.

The first subset was developed to enable landowners to easily rate their
properties for fire risk; the second subset was derived to validate the
assigned ratings in the first subset.
