The Wildland/Urban Interface Fire Hazards: A New Look at Understanding Hazard Assessment Methodologies Pamphlet provides individuals and organizations involved or interested in preventing wildland fire disasters with concepts, recommendations, and resources that may be used to assess and mitigate wildfire hazards in WUI areas. It addresses the relationships between the assessment of an individual home and the collective homes within a subdivision or residential development. Information is provided as to how the uniform hazard assessment process of the Firewise Communities/USA® program may relate to jurisdictional level planning, such as a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).
The Pamphlet encourages the user to:
- Evaluate their existing interface areas before beginning mitigation efforts
- Validate existing hazard rating systems
- Provide a planning tool for future development
(Softbound, 23 pages, 2006)
