International WUI Code
The International WUI Code is a model code intended to supplement a jurisdiction’s building and fire codes. The objective of the code is to establish minimum regulations for the safeguarding of life and property from the intrusion of fire from wildland fire exposures and fire exposures from adjacent structures, and to prevent structure fires from spreading to wildland fuels, even in the absence of fire department involvement.
Provides a methodology for assessing wildland fire ignition hazards around existing structures, residential developments and subdivisions. It also assesses improved property or planned property improvement that will be located in a Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) area and it provides minimum requirements for new construction to reduce the potential of structure ignition from wildland fires.
