StormGeo, a provider of weather intelligence and decision support solutions, has launched the Wildfire Risk Assessment to help U.S. businesses protect against the threat of wildfires. The product uses StormGeo’s weather data to report on a fire’s size, smoke and air quality, and ultimately forecast the risk of a fire developing or spreading.
Wildfire Risk Assessment looks at the three main risks wildfires pose businesses: current active fires, smoke and air quality, and forecast fire danger, which includes public safety power shutoffs. The solution is designed to then calculate the potential risks from each of these areas and deliver a tactical report. In theory, these insights and takeaways can help businesses better develop and launch a response plan to current and potential wildfires, and minimize any associated costs.
