"To help mitigate wildfire damage, Schwab and Meck stress the need for a combined effort from local, state, and federal governments, fire agencies, and residents. 'There is no one single approach to dealing with wildfires. Everyone shares in the responsibility to mitigate wildfire damage,' said Meck, APA senior research fellow. 'This includes implementing development design standards to help mitigate fire damage, and engaging and educating residents on their role in preventing wildfire damage.' "
