Résumé
Wildfires provide a very serious risk to human life and property. One way to combat the potential devastating impact of wildfires is individuals preparing themselves for when wildfires will occur. I present three studies hoping to clarify the concepts of ’community’, and preparedness’, and establish the importance of person-community interactions on wildfire preparedness. Overall, results identified some potential subtypes that should provide a finer grain understanding of preparendess. Results also indicate the importance of community expectations for preparedness and how expectations interact with personal characteristics. Additionally, results provide support for the continued use of community as regional place.
