Description

From the text ... 'Preventing structure loss has become a major focal point of wildland firefighting. Most days, it feels like wildland fire professionals and land managers are becoming more and more responsible for reducing property losses in the wildland/urban interface (WUI)....The hope is that we can work with nonwildland fire professionals and the business community to ensure that reducing wildfire losses matters to them, too.'
