Webinar - Evaluating Rural Pacific Northwest Towns for Wildfire Evacuation Vulnerability

Description

Speaker: Alex Dye, Oregon State University

Wildfire is an annual threat for many rural communities in the Pacific Northwest. In some severe events, evacuation is one potential course of action to gain safety from an advancing wildfire. Since most evacuations occur in a personal vehicle along the surrounding road network, the quality of this network is a critical component of a community's vulnerability to wildfire. This webinar details a regional-scale screening of wildfire evacuation vulnerability that was completed for 696 Oregon and Washington rural towns.

This webinar is hosted by the Northwest Fire Science Consortium.
