The Firewise USA™ map has been updated to include the latest layer of Firewise sites in good standing as well as a host of other new features.
You've always been able to search the map by your address or physical location. However, now you can search for any Firewise USA™ site by the site name as well. We have also added the US Forest Service’s ‘Wildfire Hazard Potential’ (WHP) layer to the map. This layer can help inform assessments of wildfire risk and depicts the relative potential for wildfire that would be difficult to suppress. To activate this layer, simply select the 'layers' button in the navigation menu and check the 'Wildfire Hazard Potential' box.
Lastly, thanks to our new Firewise Portal, the informational pop-up about each Firewise USA™ site has been updated to include how much each site has invested over their life in the program. Try searching for 'Sun City Texas Community Association' to see just how incredible their investment in lowering their wildfire risk has been over the last nine years!
