Our forests have been neglected or protected to death, creating an extreme wildfire risk in wildland urban intermix communities. We as agencies and organizations are just now beginning to understand that the fuel problems we have across the western states are not a single agency problem, but 'our problem.' Wildfires do not respect boundaries, be they political, jurisdictional, or private. Our fuels problem must be dealt with from a cooperative effort by all individuals who reside and work in the wildland urban intermix communities.
