    Description

    In-depth interviews conducted with homeowners in Larimer County's Wildland-Urban Interface revealed that homeowners face difficult decisions regarding the implementation of wildfire mitigation measures. Perceptions of wildfire mitigation options may be as important as perceptions of wildfire risk in determining likelihood of implementation. These mitigation options are often viewed as trade-offs between wildfire risk and preferred landscapes. Study participants reported, however, that one-on-one information sharing with fire experts as well as an increased understanding of the flexibility of mitigation options encourage implementation of wildfire mitigation measures.
