Jupiter, a provider of predictive data and analytics for climate risk and resilience, announced it has received a $1 million grant from the Moore Foundation, which will be used to accelerate deployment of Jupiter’s wildfire threat and intelligence platform, FireScore™ Operations. The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, whose mission is to foster path-breaking scientific discovery, environmental conservation, patient care improvements and preservation of the special character of the Bay Area, awarded the grant in order to provide Jupiter’s FireScore Operations to firefighters, emergency services and other public sector entities by June 1, 2020.

“Making FireScore Operations available for California in time for the 2020 fire season is going to save lives and property,” Rich Sorkin, CEO of Jupiter, said in a statement. “By increasing lead time for emergency management, FireScore Operations will help optimize evacuation planning, utility de-energization and prepositioning of resources, enabling emergency managers to suppress fires in their early stages and protect public safety and property. We expect all major utilities in fire-prone areas worldwide will use this service.”
