Wildland-urban interface

May contain: sticker and logo

Citizens are moving farther into “natural” areas to take advantage of the privacy, natural beauty, recreational opportunities and affordable living. Developers are building neighborhoods to accommodate the influx. As a result, fire departments are fighting fires along the Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI), defined as areas where homes are built near or among lands prone to wildland fire. Many homes in the Kuna Rural Fire District are in the WUI area, and homeowners can take steps to make their homes "Firewise" and mitigate their risk of damage or loss from Wildland Fires. For more information, visit Idaho Firewise or click "learn more."
