ISO, Intterra, Western Fire Chiefs Partner to Better Understand Wildfire Risk

ISO and Intterra are partnering with the Western Fire Chiefs Association to explore new ways of analyzing and understanding wildfire risk.

Intterra has worked with the WFCA for several years to develop the Fire Data Lab, a nonprofit organization dedicated to accelerating the use of data-driven decision making in the fire service.

The addition of ISO is expected to bring insurance data and risk analytics to the alliance to help generate new insights.

“The growth of wildfires is constantly creating new challenges for those on the front lines working to protect people and property,” Jeff Johnson, CEO of the WFCA, said in a statement. “With Intterra and ISO, we’ll look to harness the power of fire analytics, environmental data, and insurance innovation to gain new perspectives on how to mitigate and respond to these complex natural disasters.”

Intterra is a provider of software for fire departments across the U.S.

WFCA serves as a representative for leaders of fire-related emergency service organizations throughout the WFCA member states and the Western Pacific Islands.

ISO, a Verisk business, is a provider of tools and analytics for the property/casualty insurance industry.
