SUMMARY: Texas experienced its largest wildfire in State history in February, contributing to a trend of hotter summers, longer droughts, and more frequent windy days that increase wildfire risk. The Wildland Urban interface, where human development meets undeveloped land, poses a particular threat. In 2011, the Labor Day weekend fires devastated homes in Travis County. This prompted local leaders to establish a task force and develop a plan for wildfire management. Key steps for homeowners include clearing roofs, gutters, and vents of debris, using non-combustible materials for siding and decks, and keeping flammable objects at least 5 feet away from the home. Public involvement is crucial in protecting Austin and Travis County from wildfires.

May is Wildfire Awareness Month, and communities around Texas are doing just that before it gets really hit and really dry
