The First Street Foundation has expanded its portfolio of peer reviewed, property specific, climate adjusted physical risk models with the launch of the First Street Foundation Wildfire Model, estimating the risk of wildfire on a property-by-property basis across the United States today, and up to 30 years into the future.

This high-precision, climate-adjusted wildfire model provides insights for individual property owners of residential, commercial, critical, and social infrastructure buildings.

These results are made available through Risk FactorTâ¢, the first free source of high-quality probabilistic wildfire risk information at the property level available to the public.

The model was developed in partnership with researchers and wildfire experts from First Street Foundation and the Pyregence consortium, including Spatial Informatics Group, Reax Engineering, and Eagle Rock Analytics.

This analysis follows the open science approach taken by First Street Foundation for climate-adjusted flood risk.
