Using Plans and Regulations to Increase Community Fire Adaptation: Summary

FAC Net Staff

Part one of a four-part series on using planning and regulations for community fire adaptation. Wildfire disasters are often shaped by a number of factors in the built and natural environment, including topography, fuel continuity, fuel type, development patterns, land use and ingress and egress. Plans and regulations provide communities with tools to influence many of these factors, ultimately to enhance resiliency and fire adaptation. This set of quick guides introduces opportunities to integrate wildfire into planning and regulatory approaches, shares insights on where they apply and how they work, and provides tips on how they may complement other fire adapted community strategies.
