103: Method to Our Madness – Assessing home and property risk in the wildland urban interface, it isn’t just about assigning a risk number to a property. It’s about building relationships, connecting to and learning from homeowners, gathering relevant data and then utilizing that data for multiple purposes. The presenters will show home assessment development history and techniques, data collected and why, and demonstrate the multiple uses for that data using a SimTable.
