WILDFIRE RISK ANALYSIS • The Littleville Volunteer Fire Department needs to develop a wildfire risk map and subsequent analyses that will help in their response planning and mitigation efforts. - Calculate the average wildfire risk for each of the Littleville fire districts (Districts base map). - Create a map that shows the calculated wildfire risk for each location within a 300 meter buffer (3 cells) around all housing locations.

TERRAIN, COVER TYPE, AND HUMAN ACTIVITY • Terrain Slope. Steeper slopes have higher risk— 9 (high risk)= >40%, 8= 3040, 6= 20 -30, 4= 10 -20, 2= 5 -10 and 1 (low)= 0 -5% • Terrain Orientation. Southerly aspects have higher risks— 9 (high risk)= S/SW, 8= SE, 6= E/W, 5= Flat, 3= NW, 2= NE and 1 (low)= N • Cover type. Forested locations have highest risk— 9 (high risk)= Forest, 1 (low)= Meadow and 0= Open Water (no risk) • Proximity to Roads. Closer to roads have higher risk— 9 (high risk)= 0 cells away, 7= 1, 4= 2 -3 and 1 (low)= >3 cells away • Proximity to Houses. Closer to houses have higher risk— 9 (high risk)= 0 cells away, 8= 1, 6= 2, 4= 3 -5 and 1 (low)= >5 cells away • Can’t Burn Water. Masking consideration— 0= Open Water (lake or pond) and the zero rating is “forced” for these locations regardless of the calculated risk considering the other criteria

TERRAIN SLOPE - RENUMBER Terrain Slope. Steeper slopes have higher risk— 9 (high risk)= >40%, 8= 3040, 6= 20 -30, 4= 10 -20, 2= 5 -10 and 1 (low)= 0 -5%

TERRAIN ORIENTATION - RENUMBER Terrain Orientation. Southerly aspects have higher risks— 9 (high risk)= S/SW, 8= SE, 6= E/W, 5= Flat, 3= NW, 2= NE and 1 (low)= N

COVER TYPE - RENUMBER Cover type. Forested locations have highest risk— 9 (high risk)= Forest, 1 (low)= Meadow and 0= Open Water (no risk)

PROXIMITY TO ROADS - SPREAD Proximity to Roads. Closer to roads have higher risk— 9 (high risk)= 0 cells away, 7= 1, 4= 2 -3 and 1 (low)= >3 cells away

ROADS RISK - RENUMBER Proximity to Roads. Closer to roads have higher risk— 9 (high risk)= 0 cells away, 7= 1, 4= 2 -3 and 1 (low)= >3 cells away

PROXIMITY TO HOUSES - SPREAD Proximity to Houses. Closer to houses have higher risk— 9 (high risk)= 0 cells away, 8= 1, 6= 2, 4= 3 -5 and 1 (low)= >5 cells away

HOUSES RISK - RENUMBER Proximity to Houses. Closer to houses have higher risk— 9 (high risk)= 0 cells away, 8= 1, 6= 2, 4= 3 -5 and 1 (low)= >5 cells away
