Texas Wildfire Risk Explorer

The Texas Wildfire Risk Explorer (known as the “Risk Explorer”) is the primary mechanism for Texas A&M Forest Service to deploy wildfire risk information and create awareness about wildfire issues across the state. This application is tailored to support specific workflow and information requirements for the public, local community groups, private landowners, government officials, hazard-mitigation planners, and wildland fire managers. The application also provides the baseline information needed to support mitigation and prevention efforts across the state.

The Texas Wildfire Risk Explorer data layers and information include: wildfire threat, wildland urban interface, surface fuels, historic wildfire ignitions, fire behavior, and much more.

The Texas Wildfire Risk Assessment Portal (TxWRAP) is a free, easy-to-use website with information, data and resources to help homeowners and communities understand, identify and reduce their wildfire risk.

Wildfires continue to threaten people and property across Texas. As the state’s population grows, our communities are rapidly expanding into the wildland urban interface. Increasing effects of long-term drought and increased fuel loading conditions across the state present major concerns for communities in these areas. Fire has long since been an important part of our ecosystem and adapting our communities to live with fire is imperative as we continue to expand into wildland areas.

Our goal is to empower homeowners and communities to take action in reducing their vulnerability to wildfire by giving them the necessary tools to identify and understand their risk.
