Reduce the risk of wildland fire disasters with the latest protection strategies in NFPA 1144.

Essential for community preparedness and protection, the revised and retitled NFPA 1144: Reducing Structure Ignitions from Wildland Fire is based on the fire protection principle that, in order to prevent future wildland fire disasters, ignitions of homes and buildings must be prevented. Reflecting research from the USDA Forest Service, NIST, and other authorities, the Standard's completely revised provisions cover minimum design, construction and landscaping elements for structures in the wildland/urban interface.

The 2008 NFPA 1144 presents:

  • A sound method to assess key elements and conditions of existing homes and buildings
  • Revised requirements for new construction that aim to reduce potential ignitions from wildland fire through proper siting, fire-resistant materials, and minimizing exterior exposure hazards
  • An Annex with numerous examples of mitigation strategies to reduce structure ignition from wildfire flames, including burning embers (firebrands) that may be deposited from remote wildfires
  • A revised Hazard Assessment Form -- a frequently-used Annex -- excludes infrastructure items such as road width and available water supplies, which have little impact on preventing ignitions

Equipped with the 2008 NFPA 1144, local, state, and federal fire agencies can address escalating challenges presented by the proliferation of wildland/urban interface communities and the need to protect life and property in these areas. (Softbound, 30 pp., 2008)
