Wildfire Risk

Wildfire Risk data is designed to assess the real-world exposure of critical infrastructure and property to wildfire impacts. Drawing on a large variety of data sets, both inside and outside the public domain, Wildfire Risk paints a picture of wildfire exposure for underwriting, pricing, portfolio analysis, and loss estimation across the United States. Wildfire Risk provides a comprehensive 0-50 fire risk score while giving detailed scores on variables like fuel, frequency, and mitigation.

Built by wildfire scientists with over 30 years of real-world firefighting and fire modeling experience, Wildfire risk accounts for three unique fire environments: Wildland, Intermix, and Interface, enabling you to analyze threats from direct flame exposure, smoke, and even embers. Other modeling tools place too much emphasis on defensible space, but do not account for ember cast. Embers were found to be the primary cause of structure loss in the eastern Tennessee fires, which claimed approximately 2,400 structures.

Avoid risky policies, accurately price, and decrease the loss ratio, with fire risk context provided by Precisely’s Wildfire Risk..
