WUI Resiliency: Answering to Climate Change

Presented by Maria Theodori, Fire Engineer, Arup

Wildfires are occurring with increasing frequency and intensity as a result of longer and drier fire weather season due to climate change. Consequently, wildfires emit black and brown carbon aerosols into the atmosphere, which have been proven to be a large contributor of global warming. The technology and strategies that are used to mitigate wildfire risk should also be sustainable solutions to serve climate goals, since the two matters are interdependent. Recent advancements in WUI and climate resiliency against wildfires include the use of satellite monitoring for fire and emissions detection, the improvement of risk assessment and fire propagation models, and the enforcement of WUI building code and policy. As fire engineers, it is critical that we promote and continue to enhance these climate-smart solutions for mitigating wildfire risk.
