Verisk Wildfire Risk Analysis uses data from FireLine®, Verisk’s wildfire risk management tool. FireLine evaluates wildfire risk at the address level using advanced remote sensing and digital mapping technology to assess the primary factors contributing to wildfire risk—fuel, slope, and road access. FireLine also identifies properties located in Special Hazard Interface Areas, indicating risks exposed to wind-borne embers.
