This week is National Fire Prevention Week.
The University of California has some fantastic resources designed to reduce fire risk for individuals and communities, particularly for those living near the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI). The WUI is the area where urban and suburban development meets undeveloped areas containing natural vegetation.
Many of the resources listed below were developed by UCCE Natural Resource Advisor Sabrina Drill. The majority of her publications provide direction for taking small, regular steps at reducing fire risk on your property.
Sharing these resources with neighbors may further reduce the risk of fire in your community.
