Wildland Urban Interface Fires
After umpteen years of fighting wildland fires and and defending structures, what have we learned as firefighters?

1. It is ultimately up to the homeowner to take responsibility to protect their own home by creating a defensible space. How can they expect us to make a decision in a few seconds of whether or not to protect their house when they have had many years to make the same decision?
2. Donít waste time on homes that are already involved. Move on, protect exposures, and hit spot fires!
3. No structure is worth a life!

The rules I learnt are if you cannot see up the driveway to turn the truck around then don't go up it. - go to the next property.Disclaimer
