Every year, the Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management evaluates all Arizona communities to make certain we are reaching those areas that may have the most potential to be affected by wildfire.
One of the tools DFFM uses is the Arizona At Risk Communities assessment system. The assessment is a wildfire management-centric process to estimate wildland fire risk for communities, based off the best available data. The list helps prioritize areas for DFFM to target to conduct hazardous fuels assessments and fuels reduction projects.
