Description

The problem of fire protection in the urban/wildland interface is a complex combination of three components: fire behavior and combustion, social and political factors, and the cooperation of property owners. By examing the problem's component parts, it is easier to understand its complexity and to integrate often quite diverse factors relating to interface fire protection.
