Wildfire Buffer Zone Cost-Benefit Analysis
“How can we perform a cost-benefit analysis for wildfire buffer zones?”
Many municipalities in fire-prone areas are considering building a wildfire buffer zone. However, costs can limit the size, scope, and type of wildfire buffer zones feasible. Furthermore, communities might question if such a proposal is necessary at all. To solve this, municipalities can undertake Wildfire Buffer Zone Cost-Benefit Analysis to check what would be best for them. This includes studying what size buffer zones would work, how their geography would protect them from fires, and what types of funds they can raise.
