Firebehavior
There are many potential pathways for wildland fires to ignite buildings within the WUI. These pathways (including both fire and ember exposure) depend on the characteristics of the wildland, the characteristics of the community, and the characteristics of the interface. The Fire Protection Research Foundation is an independent nonprofit whose mission is to plan, manage and communicate research in support of the NFPA mission. The Foundation is seeking a contractor to compile information on structure ignition pathways in wildland fires and identify gaps to inform prevention and protection strategies in NFPA standards. Deadline for submission is May 30.
