Colorado Wildfire Risk Assessment Portal

The Colorado State Forest Service at Colorado State University has released a new online tool, the Colorado Wildfire Risk Assessment Portal, or CO-WRAP.  This website is designed to help those living in the wildland-urban interface understand the level of wildfire risk to their property.  Using maps and data, the site assesses the risk to a particular area based on historical fire occurrences, landscape characteristics, effects of past wildfires, and the fire intensity scale (a system of quantifying the projected intensity of a fire in a particular area).  If you live or own property in a potential wildfire zone, check out this helpful resource today.
