ABSTRACT

Wildland Urban Interface Fire Operational Requirements and Capability Analysis: Report of Findings   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Executive Summary: "In December of 2017, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator requested the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) research new and emerging technology that could be applied to wildland fire incident response, given the loss of life that occurred in California during the fall of 2017 in Santa Rosa and Ventura. [...] As a result, S&T formed an Integrated Project Team (IPT) and initiated the WUI [wildland urban interface] Fire Operational Requirements and Technology Capability Analysis Project. Over the course of the project, the IPT identified areas of innovation in wildland fire incident relating to wildland fire preparedness and mitigation and enhanced wildland fire suppression practices, including resistant infrastructure planning, building materials, and building codes."
