Man-made risks are significant, and include fire and pollution. Fire can occur in residential, commercial, or wildland form. Fire occurs as a result of human error at home or in the workplace. Wildland fires can start as a result of unsupervised campfires burning matches or live cigarettes (El Dorado Hills Fire Dept, 2010). Because the rainfall per year for the area is fairly low, wildland fires are a significant risk.
