Follow these updated guidelines to minimize death and destruction from wildfire!

Revised to incorporate the latest industry data, NFPA 1144 provides minimum planning, construction, maintenance, education, and management elements for the protection of life, property and other values that could be threatened by wildland fire. It is designed to assist local, state, and federal fire agencies in dealing with the escalating challenges presented by the proliferation of wildland/urban interface communities and the monetary losses of structures in wildland/urban interface areas.

Guidelines address:

  • Assessment and planning
  • Access, ingress, egress and evacuation
  • Fuel modification area
  • Water supply
  • Residential development design, location and construction
  • Fire protection during construction
  • Community planning for protection of life and property from wildland fire

Major changes to the document from last edition include:

  • Document renumbered from NFPA 299 to NFPA 1144
  • The document was rewritten based on continuing research and post fire analysis that indicated a need for a reassessment of the attributes of wildland/urban interface subdivisions covered in the Standard. (Softbound, 19 pp., 2002)

(Formerly NFPA 299)
