Due to the increase of wildfires nationally and related legislation/regulation, utilities are actively developing wildfire mitigation plans (WMPs). These comprehensive plans help utilities develop operational policies and practices to prevent, prepare for and respond to wildfire events. BKI has been helping its utility partners prepare WMPs since 2018.
If you do not require a full plan or plan review but would like some help bolstering your utility’s preparedness, BKI is here to answer your wildfire mitigation questions. We can assist with various projects, including:
• Backup Generator Settings
• Vegetation Management Programs
• Protection Device Coordination
• General System Hardening
Wildfire Mitigation Plan
This full-service option includes a complete risk assessment of your system, boots-on-the-ground verification of mapping, and evaluation of existing programs. Our plans are custom tailored to accommodate your utility’s specific wildfire mitigation goals and meet or exceed the planning requirements of any state.
Wildfire Mitigation Independent Evaluation
If you have an existing WMP, BKI can review your plan to ensure that it is comprehensive in scope, meets the statutory requirements for your state, and contains electric utility best management practices for wildfire mitigation. Our evaluation service includes recommendations to correct any identified deficiencies.
This assessment is the first step towards future development of a Wildfire Mitigation Plan, capturing your existing operations programs and recommending improvements to your wildfire mitigation efforts.
