1 out of 5 homes in the United States has a measurable risk of being hit with wildfire and 47 out of 50 states have communities exposed to wildfire.

Unlike other natural disasters…

the level of community resilience to wildfire  has an out sized impact on neighboring structures.

While it’s easy to think of wildfire as a wall of flames,

what sparks the majority of wildfires is something smaller than the size of a pea - an ember. All it takes is 1 ember to spread wildfire damage especially if you are not prepared.
