Wildfire Mitigation Plans - How catastrophic wildfires can be prevented
by Tony Green

There have been no catastrophic wildfires in the state of California this season. However, the factors, much of which are attributed to climate change, still make the threat of future wildfires in the future very real. The Wildfire Mitigation Plan (WMP) was created to provide the state's utilities tools to prevent the possibility of future wildfires from utility ignitions. Learn what an WMP is, in addition to the circumstances which caused their creation and why they are vital in protecting us against the threat of catastrophic wildfires.

Learn about:
* What causes wildfires?
* What steps are being taken to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires?
* Why are wildfires becoming more intense and frequent?
* The contribution of climate change to wildfires
* How will climate change affect future wildfires?
