    Description

    One of the major issues in the southern wildland-urban interface is the loss of homes to wildfire. For homeowners who live in an area with a medium to high risk of wildfire, this document provides useful information for protecting your property (see University of Florida/IFAS publication FOR 71 "Landscaping in Florida with Fire in Mind” to determine your wildfire risk, http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/FR076; New wildfire risk assessment guidelines for homeowners in the southern USA were released in the summer of 2004 by the University of Florida/IFAS at http://www.interfacesouth.org/fire/WildfireRAGH.pdf). While fire control agencies play an important role in fire prevention and the protection of homes, there are actions that individual homeowners can take to reduce the vulnerability of their home to wildfire.
