Wildfire: A Changing Landscape | A Global Resilience Institute and National Fire Protection Association Assessment
by Stephen Flynn, Global Resilience Institute
This report is the product of a collaboration between GRI and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) at the request of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The focus of the report is to determine the impacts of wildfire on vulnerable communities and critical infrastructure. The study analyzed several disasters from the 2016 wildfire season and was informed by numerous published studies, reports, and various public- and private-sector projects addressing wildfires in North America. The report also includes a survey of existing resources on wildfire research combined with the results of a day-long workshop of experts and practitioners held at the NFPA’s headquarters in June 2017.
