A workflow and tools to perform a Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) from the project to the unit scale is under development in IFTDSS. The process follows the steps outlined in GTR-315, “A wildfire risk assessment framework for land and resource management.” IFTDSS is unique in that it will contain a comparison functionality allowing users to complete a QRA and then compare treatment alternatives to understand the potential impacts on risk.
The IFTDSS development team and technical advisors have already been working on the technical details of the Quantitative Risk Assessment through the summer of 2018. Continued work on integrating the Landscape burn probability model will continue through the Fall and Winter of 2018. Throughout 2019 the team will develop the user interface, workflow and data specifications within IFTDSS with portions of the workflow being incrementally available throughout the year.
