    Description

    Because many major population centers are located in wildland areas, many structures have been destroyed by increasingly more costly wildland fires. The structure and jurisdiction of the fire service in California are complex, and a uniform approach to fire prevention is lacking. A description of many of the fire issues in the wildland-urban intermix is provided. The relationship between State and local governments is at the heart of many of the issues. Cooperation between State and local governments coupled with public education and enforcement of current standards and regulations should reduce the occurrence of catastrophic wildland urban intermix fires.
