    Description

    In this presentation, we describe results of a survey to homeowners living in wildfire-prone areas of two counties along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. The survey was designed to elicit information on homeowners' experience with wildfire, perceptions of wildfire risk on their property and neighboring properties, mitigation efforts undertaken to reduce wildfire risk, information sources for wildfire risk and mitigation, level of involvement in the local community, and attitudes toward wildfire and the environment in general. The sample was randomly drawn from a population database created using GIS (Geographic Information Systems) technology. The representative sampling allowed us to hear from individuals who might not be participating in community wildfire programs or be concerned with wildfire risk, as well as individuals who are involved and concerned.
