Wildland Urban Interface Information Center


More people are living in what is known as the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI), where homes and other structures are built in or near woodland settings or forests. While residents enjoy the beauty of the environment, they also face the very real danger of wildfire. They can be ignited by escaped debris burning, the careless tossing of a cigarette, an unattended campfire, or from natural causes like lighting, and they spread fast. Several wildfire preparedness programs are available to help prevent casualties and property loss by wildfires. Use the links below to learn more about these valuable programs.
