The IAFC's Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) conference is a five-day event offering hands-on training and interactive sessions designed to address the challenges of wildland fire. If you are one of the many people responsible for protecting local forests or educating landowners and your community about the importance of land management - then this is the conference for you.
Held in the spring, WUI brings together leaders from the local, state and federal levels to collaborate against the fastest growing fire threat in the world - the wildland/urban interface. From education and mitigation, suppression strategies, high-hazard operations to policy, and including 40,000 square feet of exhibits, WUI addresses the toughest challenges facing the wildland firefighting community.
If you have a role in protecting your community's local forests or educating landowners on wildland fire safety - then this is the conference for you. We hope to see you next year for the Wildland-Urban Interface Conference.
