Description

This report is part of the Regional Priority Planning for Wildfire Risk Reduction and Forest Health project (RPP). The RPP helps with the planning, mapping, and prioritizing of projects that proactively address wildfire threat in Santa Barbara County. It also helps with improving forest and habitat health on public and private land in the urban/wildland interfaces. It helps build climate resilience and protection against wildland fires for both human and natural environments. This report summarizes and links to a spatial decision support system (SDSS) designed to meet these project goals. The Fire SDSS is designed to support three target questions: Where in the county are the sites that are relatively high priority for Wildfire Risk Reduction Treatments? Of these, where are the sites that are relatively high priority for Open Space Wildfire Risk Reduction Treatments? Of these, where are the sites that are relatively high priority for Prescribed Herbivory Wildfire Risk Reduction Treatments?
