According to the Colorado State Forest Service, more than two million Coloradans live in the wildland-urban interface (WUI). The wildland-urban interface is any area where man-made improvements are built close to, or within, natural terrain and flammable vegetation, and where high potential for wildland fire exists.

Protecting a home, property and a community from wildfire is a process that requires ongoing participation, maintenance and shared responsibility. The following links are helpful resources that can help reduce wildfire risk.
