Abstract: 

In this program students will investigate the causes and effects of urban/wildland interface wildfires and use EPIC 2001 (free GIS software to schools) to analyze a community for fire-prone property by conducting GIS and ground assessments and compiling a community report. This program can provide students with a valuable community service project, improve their technology skills, and give them a real-world experience that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.
