The Arizona Republic and USA TODAY Publish Major Data Analysis of Wildfire Risks While M Fire Stands Ready With New Safe Fire Tech To Defend

August 18, 2019 by Steve Conboy

Nearly a year after the deadliest wildfire in California, the Arizona Republic and USA TODAY published a major data analysis of wildfire hazards in Western states that features interactive tools to help people understand the risks in their communities. The Republic and USA TODAY analyzed fire hazards across 760 million acres of the American West and found that more than 500 small communities face a wildfire potential greater than in Paradise, California, where the Camp Fire left 85 people dead and nearly 19,000 buildings destroyed. “Ahead of the Fire” allows users to personalize the data by looking up specific communities that are relevant to them.

The Republic and USA Today first analyzed U.S. Forest Service data of wildfire hazard potential (WHP) and then paired the data with more than 5,000 Census-designated places. Data reporters also examined other factors that raise risk beyond the initial wildfire hazard potential, such as evacuation constraints, age, disabilities, alerting systems and mobile homes.

USA TODAY NETWORK newsrooms across eight states worked together on the reporting for “Ahead of the Fire.” The interactive project includes an interactive map illustrating potential fire hazards, a data explorer, informational graphics, audio of 911 phone calls, photographs and stories profiling some of the highest risk towns in the West. The project received record interaction for the USA TODAY.
