As more people build in Idaho’s forests and rangelands, they become part of the ever-increasing landscape where urban meets wild—the wildland/urban interface (WUI). People living in the WUI have higher wildfire risk, as well as greater responsibility for the safety of their families, property, pets, and livestock.
Wildfire can strike anytime. However, it does not have to be devastating. You can protect your family and home. Let Idaho Firewise help you become part of a growing Firewise culture!
Idaho Firewise coordinates, supports, and promotes statewide wildland fire education to broaden the understanding of wildfire’s role in ecosystems and encourages those who live in or visit Idaho to take responsibility in reducing the risk of loss from wildfire.
