What is the Wildland Urban Interface?

The Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) is the transition area between wild lands and human development. Homes or structures in the WUI have a higher wildfire risk, and adopting defensible space is one way to help.

So young Corps-members are doing just that. “The crew did a great job. This work directly benefits communities by supporting firefighters and the public alike. Keep up the good work.” —Brian Mulhollen, Jackson County

“We had two days worth of cutting, trimming, and removing hazardous fuels along the perimeter of our subdivision. The workers were very prompt, knowledgeable, and hard working. Our subdivision is now much safer from the threat of wildfire.” —Robert Pohly, Deschutes County
