The U.S. Fire Administrator on Wildfire Risk Resilience

Nearly one-third of the U.S. population lives in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI). These fire-prone areas are a perfect storm of fuel availability, weather conditions, and ignition sources—leaving organizations and communities at serious risk of wildfire.

U.S. Fire Administrator Dr. Lori Moore-Merrell joined the show to discuss how businesses within the WUI can innovate to mitigate wildfire risk.

Listen to learn how:

  • Recent wildfire trends impact organizations today
  • Building codes and standards keep facilities and people safe
  • Drones and ignition detection technology support response
  • Regular fuel clearing mitigates wildfire risk
