What is the WUI?

The Wildland Urban Interface (WUI), pronounced 'woo-ee', is a "geographical area where structures and other human development meets or intermingles wiht wildland and vegetative fuels." The Towns of San Anselmo and Fairfax adopted the 2010 California Fire Code and the 2006 International Wildland Urban Interface Code with amendments to aid in abating the high risk of wildland fires present in Ross Valley.
