“How can we build communities resilient to wildfires?”

 

Climate change is causing wildfires to become more frequent and deadly. However, communities in the Wildland-Urban Interface and build and grow to adapt to this, whether it be creating defensible spaces, using strict fire-hardening building codes, and having well-defined evacuation routes. All of these can combine to create Fire-Resilient Communities.
