Extreme fire events in the wildland-urban interface (WUI) are a growing challenge.

Threats to life, property, infrastructure and community assets, coupled with the direct and indirect costs of extreme fire events make coordinated prevention, planning and response imperative.

Individuals and organizations from property owners, fire departments, community leaders and businesses to local, state, tribal and federal organizations all have a critical role and stake in the increasing wildland fire threat.

The IAFC wildland portal organizes resources and information into four sections based on the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Strategy:

  • Suppression
  • Fire-adapted
  • Resilient landscapes
  • Policy

The portal provides resources and information for prevention, mitigation and response in your community and toward collaborative engagement and decision-making that acknowledges the threat crosses community boundaries and recognizes the interdependence and statutory responsibilities among jurisdictions.
