As we gather in Denver for this year's Backyards & Beyond conference , we wanted to make sure that the readers of this blog know that the October special issue of NFPA Journa[l | http://www.nfpa.org/journalPortal.asp?categoryID=1337]® addresses the increasing problem of wildland fires and the challenges we face. 


The cover story, Working Together , details ways that NFPA is working to reduce wildfire losses through a series of worldwide partnerships, research endeavors and community practices, and confirms its mission of saving lives and property on an international scale.

More people worldwide are moving into areas prone to wildfire, and the threat to millions of individuals, their homes and to communities grows ever larger. Understanding the worldwide fire phenomenon and ways to mitigate its damage is paramount.
