WUI
What do we really mean when we talk about the wildland/urban interface (WUI)? That’s the question Molly Mowery poses in her latest Wildfire Watch column in the July/August 2013 issue of NFPA Journal. Turns out, not only can the “definition” of a wildland/urban interface area vary broadly across the country, but WUI conditions can vary greatly as well.

Read Molly’s column to learn how NFPA actually defines the WUI, and what these different WUI communities across the U.S. are doing to address their wildfire risk.
