Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Community Survey
The information you provide today is a great asset for fire and fuels program managers to develop better plans to help protect your community from wildfire. We would like to know more about communities living in areas at risk for wildfire to help develop new programs and improve existing programs that are specific to the needs of each community. The information collected here will give us a better idea of how we can be more effective in your area. Thank you for the taking time to fill out this survey!
