PARADISE — Californians got a deadly wakeup call when more than 27,000 Paradise residents trying to escape the Camp Fire got caught in a nightmare traffic jam. The 2018 catastrophe illuminated the grim reality that road systems throughout the state are not designed to handle a sudden evacuation.

A new USA TODAY Network-California analysis reveals the extent to which a fundamental problem in Paradise —too few escape lanes for too many people in vehicles— applies to other cities and neighborhoods at great risk of wildfire across the state.

About 350,000 Californians live in areas that have both the highest wildfire risk designation, and either the same number or fewer exit routes per person as Paradise. From the mountains, lakes and forests of northern California, to the San Diego suburbs, some residents in the most fire-prone areas have far fewer evacuation routes than the vast majority of the state.

The ratio of people to exit routes doesn’t account for all the complexities of an actual evacuation, experts say, but it does serve as a shorthand for evaluating evacuation efficacy.

Studies show that the existing high density of roads throughout most of the conterminous US and the high rates of human-caused wildfire ignition enabled by roads creates a situation where nearly all wildfires originate near roads. We also tackle some fundamental questions regarding the effectiveness of building new roads to control fires. Examination of how actual wildfires have ignited and progressed in relation to roads reveals that roads often do not serve as effective firebreaks. The access provided by roads often appears to have an insignificant effect on the ability of firefighters to control large fires. Current road systems increase risk of human-caused fire. In contrast, areas that are distant from roads have significantly less human-ignited fires.

SAN DIEGO, March 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With the next wildfire season only a few weeks away and some insurers declining coverage in threatened areas across the state of California, M-Fire Holdings, LLC, headquartered in San Diego, recently launched its patent-protected Mighty Fire Breaker™ Wild Fire Home and Community Defense Network for use by fire departments across the western United States.

The network, managed by Mighty Fire Breaker, LLC, was designed to allow firefighters to create and maintain wildfire breaks, barriers, and zones, wherever needed, through new, improved, and tested clean chemistry technology, which sprays building structures and dry vegetation with an organic fire inhibitor compound.

M-Fire's Holdings LLC UL GreenGold Certified Mighty Fire Breaker® environmentally-clean fire inhibitor chemistry has also been used by commercial developers to protect multi-family apartment buildings, as featured in The New York Times, Real Estate Weekly, Engineering News-Record, The Malibu Times magazine, and other major publications. Its ability to render high-density wood-frame construction fire resistant was recognized with the insurance industry's International Risk Management Institute's 2018 Gary E Bird Innovation Award.

In 2019, 7,860 wildfires burned more than 250,000 acres in California, destroying 732 structures and killing three people, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

During this Covid-19 Pandemic our government officials need to learn how to embrace American Technologies faster when it has accredited testing that can saves lives and structures when this pandemic is making manual fire fighting harder.
