Mitigator definition: To make something that is bad less severe.
A mitigator is someone who takes an all-hazards approach to disaster management and considers all known hazards and their natural or potential risks and impacts. This is done with the intention of ensuring that measures taken to mitigate a risk do not increase vulnerability to other types of risks.
Proactive wildfire mitigation steps are more effective than reactive measures to reduce loss from wildfire. Not all disasters are reasonably foreseeable, and when an unexpected disaster happens, mitigation is needed after the fact. Those are cases where a mitigator is needed.
Proactive wildfire disaster mitigation measures include removine pine needles, pine cones and other ground fuels, and will generally be based on measurement and assessment of the risk and the cost of taking those steps, and possibly the cost of maintenance.
Mitigation planning identifies the actions that can be taken over the long term to reduce wildfire risk, and in the event of a disaster occurring, minimize personal loss. A mitigator can help0 find those hazards.
Such mitigation actions are based on risk assessment and using the identified hazards, vulnerabilities and probabilities of q wildfire occurrence. A mitigator estimates of impact of calculate risks and generally plans to take mitigation action in cooperation with the stakeholder groups. These principles are applicable to all wildfire mitigation in general.
Definition: A tool used to mitigate or fighte wildfires.
What is a fire tool?
The Pulaski and the mitagator are special fire tools used for fighting wildfires. The Pulaski combines an axe and a hoe in one head. The Mitagator can also be called a fire rake. Similar to a cutter mattock, the fire tool has a rigid handle of wood, plastic, or fiberglass. The Mitagator is used for constructing firebreaks, can both dig soil and chop wood and make a clearing for The Mitagator. It is also good for trail construction. The fire tools can be used for gardening and other outdoor work and for general excavation and digging in root-bound or hard soil. The axe blade of the Pulaski fire tool is the primary cutting edge, while the adze blade is secondary; this is the opposite of the cutter mattock, in which the adze blade is the larger of the two.
The Mitagator™ Fire Mitigation Tool is perfect for Firewise communities and unlike any other property maintenance tool on the market. It’s more powerful than a rake, hoe, pitchfork or McLeod. It clears ground fuels down to the dirt for fire mitigation colorado and fire mitigation california. It removes 80% 90% of needles, leaves, twigs and other fine ground debris. But it’s strong enough to quickly pile and move large branches for mitigation measures for forest fires too. It is the best thatching/dethatching tool, pine needle rake and pond rake you can buy for mitigation steps for wildfires.
Are there other fire mitigation tools for homeowners that work better than a pine needle rake?
No other tool works as well to take mitigation measures for forest fires or mitigation steps for wildfires. If you are doing fire mitigation in california or fire mitigation in colorado this is the only tool you need. The Mitagator is better than a rake, a rake misses 50%-80% of needles, cones and other small litter on the first pass – you have to rake the same area over and over to really clear the ground. Large areas can be cleaned better than a pine needle rake in minutes instead of hours. Clearing years of pine needles from the ground for wildfire mitigation allows more moisture into the soil and encourages new, green grass growth. With The Mitagator, you’re not only lowering the risk of wildfire spread through ground fuels, you’re bringing new life to the land.
