NWCG Launches WUI Wildfire Mitigation Desk Reference Guide
September 2, 2014
The National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) has created a Wildland-Urban Interface Wildfire Mitigation Desk Reference Guide that is designed to provide basic background information on relevant programs and terminology for community members and agency personnel who are seeking to enhance their community’s wildfire mitigation efforts.
The four primary objectives of the reference guide are to:
- Provide a reference to assist with integrating wildland-urban interface mitigation principles into national wildland fire training;
- Promote common wildfire mitigation language and culture;
- Establish an authoritative source for wildland-urban interface mitigation information; and
- Provide consistent definitions for use by all media.
