Where Wildfires Won’t Go

Athena Intelligence knows where wildfires won’t go. The conditional, geospatial intelligence system ranks future wildfire risk into Green, Red, and Yellow.

So, while we don’t know exactly where a wildfire will occur …

Regardless of how many fires occur, or where they start, at the end of the year, properties Athena scored “Green” at the beginning of the year will account for 5% or less of all property damaged by wildfire.

Alternatively, at the end of the year, when you review all wildfire property damage, 70%+ will have been scored Red, by Athena, at the start of the year.

That is a bold claim, so we have used ESRI to build a map for you to explore the details:

Now enable map scroll — apologies for the klugy interface — but this is worth seeing. You can use your mouse to scroll back and forth, to compare Athena’s rating and where fires occurred.

Click on any of the 4 county areas to see the average score for the county.
