FEMA Fire danger? Where?

The UCSF application to FEMA, besides a great deal of peripheral information relating to the management of other forests like the Presidio, said that the California Dept of Fire and Forestry identified areas of high fire risk.

A map was attached with red areas purporting to show fire-hazard. But none of the three red areas were related to the project sites, South Ridge and Edgewood

One showed an area in the Forest Knolls neighborhood, which is privately owned. Another showed the Interior Greenbelt. A third showed the area around the water tank in the Aldea Student Housing area on Mount Sutro.

There’s a more detailed analysis of the so-called “fire-risk” here. (There’s also an excerpt from the map.)
