    Description

    The threat of life and property losses related to wildfires is a significant issue for federal, state, and local fire and planning agencies who consider the mix of residential areas and wildlands. The wildland fire threat is part of the more general consideration of human development encroaching wildlands. The March, 2000 edition of the Journal of Forestry reflects this with urban encroachment and wildland fragmentation the principal subject with residential fire one of the specific issues (Cohen 2000). Presently, the wildland fire threat to homes influences fire management and protection policies at national and local levels.
