The wildland-urban interface (WUI) is the area where human development borders or intermingles with forestland or other wildlands. Over the past several decades, the pace of development in the WUI has accelerated. Development in the WUI increases wildfire risk and complicates wildfire management.

This edition of PAS QuickNotes describes how planning, development regulations, and public education can help mitigate wildfire risk in the WUI.
