In collaboration with Yukon Wildland Fire Management branch, we have developed a computational model to assess the risk of forest fires to communities and assets in the Yukon. This work is an important step in building capacity for wildland fire science in Canada’s north. A long-term goal of this project is to create a Yukon-centered wildland fire science research program, with partnerships at other institutions and communities.
