From the text ... 'One way to protect the WUI is to restore surrounding landscapes to a healthy, resilient condition. Healthy, resilient forest ecosystems are less likely to see uncharacteristically severe wildfires that turn into human and ecological disasters. The USDA Forest Service is restoring healthy ecosystems and protection the WUI partly through the use of fire.'
