The Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) program provides information, assistance, and recommendations to homeowners and landowners with property in areas where forest fires are a danger.
The Santa Fe Fire Department is proud to be one of the only fire departments in New Mexico to have two full-time positions dedicated to Wildland Urban Interface issues and Wildfire Prevention
Since 2010 the Fire Department has had a seasonal wildland firefighting hand crew sponsored by the Youth Conservation Corps to assist with fuels management in the Wildland Urban Interface and respond to wildland fires.
