Property Fire Score leverages the power of two databases unique to HazardHub – a national Fire Station Database of over 54,000 stations and HydrantHub, the largest collection of fire hydrants in the country. For areas without hydrants, HazardHub accesses their high-resolution perennial water database. When combined with road network analysis, PFS delivers an expected loss percent and value for any property in the US.
Property Fire Score recognizes one key factor that competing systems completely miss – speed to the fire is a critical factor in extinguishing that fire. PFS is the only system that uses drive time network analysis as a key component of a fire risk score. Modern, open-air construction and newer, more flammable materials make speed to the fire more critical than ever. This true for both homes and businesses, as cavernous openings create faster, hotter fires.
Comparisons of PFS to areas that are considered the best by competing systems show that these single-score areas can have 3x the difference in risk from one property to another.
