UC Cooperative Extension Resources
UCCE is involved in fire research and education, helping enhance understanding of fire’s role in human and natural communities. We’ve developed a range of useful publications and online tools, addressing wildfire risk, fuels impacts of forest diseases, and other fire-related topics. Here is a sample of our resources:
- Home Survival in Wildfire-Prone Areas: Building Materials and Design Considerations: http://anrcatalog.ucdavis.edu/pdf/8393.pdf
- Homeowner’s Wildfire Mitigation Guide: http://ucanr.org/sites/Wildfire/
- Sudden oak death-caused changes to surface fuel loading and potential fire behavior in Douglas-fir-tanoak forests: http://www.cafiresci.org/storage/papers/psw.2011.valachovic.SODcausedchanges.FEM.pdf
