Wildland Urban Interface (WUI)

Wildfires

Each year, wildland fires threaten homes in Idaho’s wildland urban interface (WUI). Studies show that as many as 80 percent of the homes lost to wildland fires could have been saved if their owners had only followed a few simple fire-safe practices. In addition, wildland fire related deaths occur because people wait too long to leave their homes. Successfully preparing for a wildland fire enables you to take personal responsibility for protecting yourself, your family and your property. In order to achieve that goal, we use the Ready, Set, Go! Program. This program works in tandem with Idaho’s Firewise Communities program and other existing wildland fire public education efforts such as the Fire Adapted Communities Program and Living with Fire.
