Firefighters Support Foundation - Wildland/Urban Interface Fires: Structural Preparation and Protection
Fire Engineering: Free Wildland Urban Interface Fires Training Program Available
The Firefighters Support Foundation's (FSF) newest training program is now available. Wildland/Urban Interface Fires address the fact that urban and suburban fire departments are increasingly being deployed to wildfire areas, in part because urban and suburban communities are ever-expanding to the wildland boundaries. The program consists of a 60-minute video presentation and an accompanying 26-slide PowerPoint.
