From the text ... 'Fire historically has played a fundamental ecological role in many of America's wildland areas. However, the increasing number of homes in the wildland-urban interface (WUI), associated impacts on lives and property from wildfire, and escalating costs of wildfire management have led to an urgent need for communities to become 'fire-adapted.''
