This white paper encourages specific recommendations and resources to aid in understanding and managing wildfire risks. Included is information on planning for wildfires, coordinating resources, establishing ongoing and accurate communication with the community, enforcing sound loss prevention and defensible space practices, and understanding communties’ specific vulnerabilities that result from historical design or geographic location. The paper concludes with a list of available resources that are referenced throughout.
