Living in the Wildland Urban Interface (W.U.I.)

If you're fortunate to live in or visit the Estes Valley, you are spending time in the Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI). The below resources can aid you in protecting your home from the threat of wildfire and help us all be better stewards of our environment. You can also find resources on conducting a self-assessment of your property or having the Fire District conduct a free assessment on our Wildfire Property Assessments page.
