Nearly 2.9 million people in Arizona or 45% of Arizona’s population are at an elevated risk of wildfire. These 2.9 million people reside in what is called the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI). A WUI is an area where structures and other human development converge with undeveloped wildland and rural areas. This expansion into wildland areas has significant implications for wildfire management.
