Wildfires have been a natural part of our coastal forest environment for thousands of years. Building our homes in the interface with forested areas increases the risk from wildfires. With proper planning it is possible to reduce the interface fire risk by following some simple FireSmart principles. You can get FireSmart advice from the ACRD FireSmart Program.
