Document Description
The San Jacinto Mountains Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) is located in a densely overgrown forest where years of drought, bark beetle infestation, and seasonal dry winds known as Santa Ana severely increase the potential of a catastrophic wildfire. Norm Walker, Retired U.S.F.S. Division Chief, San Bernardino National Forest, provided the following description of the local communities: "The communities within the WUI are old established communities. There are no practical means of widening roads, establishing 'green belts' of manicured lawns, or building block walls between the community an d wildland.
