Participate in a Wildfire Risk Mitigation Study

Researchers from SJSU’s Wildfire Interdisciplinary Research Center need your help in providing feedback on your experiences navigating wildfire risk management on private property.

Site Evaluation: They are seeking 25 volunteers to participate in in-depth site evaluations. Student researchers will perform two site visits at a time convenient for you: (1) during late spring or early summer and (2) late-summer/early fall 2022. Participants will also complete a 20–60 minute interview conversation about wildfire mitigation. After the site evaluations and interview are completed, participants will receive a $100 Amazon gift card as compensation for participating in the study.

Interviews: Researchers are collecting data on resident experiences navigating wildfire risk mitigation on private property to learn more about what is going well and what challenges remain when addressing wildfire risk in our area. Interviews typically take 20–60 minutes and can occur in-person or via Zoom.

If you are interested in participating in the study, please fill out the online interest form at: or contact our student researchers who can answer any questions you may have about the project:
