Fire and fire prevention in the Wildland Urban Interface

With year-round fire season as the "new normal" in SoCal, this timely discussion about wildfire prevention and how we can design with fire prevention in mind is important.

2017 and 2018 were two of the most destructive and deadly fire years in California’s history. Yet destructive wildland fires are not new to California. Large urban areas mixed with topographic, weather, and vegetation conditions that favor intense fires means that wildland fire will continue to be a risk to Californians. While large, intense fires are extremely difficult to control there are a number of methods available to planners, developers, and property owners that will improve the safety of the people on the property and reduce the risk of losing structures in a wildland fire. This program will cover the methods for reducing the risk of structure ignition as well as providing an overview of wildland fire and the Wildland Urban Interface.

Learning Objectives

1: Gain a basic understanding of wildland fire behavior and firefighting
2: Define the Wildland Urban Interface
3: How smart landscaping and prudent property management can save houses
4: Designing and building in the Wildland Urban Interface to lessen the risk of home ignition
