    Description

    Large fires can result in a series of disasters for individuals and communities in the wildland-urban interface. They create significant disruptions to ongoing social processes, result in large financial losses, and lead to expensive restoration activities. By being aware of the impacts of wildland fire on local residents, fire managers can bring added value to them and help smooth agency-community tensions. This fact sheet discusses activities that can have serious impacts on communities and local residents during a wildland fire.
