"Surviving Wildfire is a must-read for people who are considering moving to the WUI and also those who are already living in their dream homes. Small but power packed, this book gives vital information. I highly recommend this book to Homeowner Associations, communities, developers, and anyone else who lives or works in the WUI."

"The fire research and preparedness information in this book is spot-on, and after 39 years of experience, I found the chapters on insurance and recovery real eye-openers. Surviving Wildfire gets through to people in ways that officials just cannot. I'm recommending it to everyone in our district."
