Wildland / urban interface fire risk model

Abstract [en]

Wildland/ Urban Interface (WUI) fires and communities at risk are high priorities to federal land management agencies. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Upper Snake River District (USRD) Geographic Information Systems (GIS) team, in cooperation with Idaho State University’s (ISU) GIS Training and Research Center (GIS TreC), have created a model to predict potential fire risk areas around the city of Pocatello, Idaho. The study area is Pocatello, Idaho city limits with a buffer of approximately 1 mile surrounding it. To create a wildland/ urban interface fire model the criteria that were considered are topography and vegetation characteristics, and suppression access. Data presented in this report contains detailed conclusions of the effect that each criterion will have on the model, and the result as a complete model. With the data available we believe that we have produced a reliable, accurate, yet not overly complicated model of community areas at risk to wildfire.
