Wildfire is an essential process in forest ecosystems but can be incredibly destructive in the wildland-urban interface. Successful adaptation must include individuals and communities learning how to coexist with wildfire. Land-use change, fire exclusions and global warming have made many forests highly susceptible to intense, volatile fires that are difficult to control, and thus spread quickly. What actions should citizens take to improve societal resilience to climate change and coexist with wildfire?
