GOT DEFENSIBLE SPACE?
Is your home or property is located within a Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) area?
Protecting the Novato community from wildfire is a shared responsibility. WUI, commonly pronounced “Woo-Eee,” is defined as, “a geographical area where structures and other human development meets or intermingles with wildland or vegetative fuels.” This means that as a community we recognize certain hazards and risks associated from wildland fires to life and property in these areas. The intent of defining this area in our community is to create a comprehensive set of reasonable and concrete steps that the community can take over time to mitigate the risks to life and property from the intrusion of fire from wildland exposures, fire from adjacent structures, and to prevent a structure fire from spreading to wildland fuels.
Information in Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) flyer will help us help you protect your home in a wildland fire.
