The link below is a half hour conversation summarizing and analyzing the value of the 2018 International Wildland Urban Interface Code. Karl Fippinger, Vice-President of ICC Fire and Disaster Mitigation interviews Kevin Scott, Principal of KH Scott and Associates, Fire and Life Safety Consultants of Bakersfield, CA. I found it an excellent way to understand the intentions and mechanisms that brought this International Code into existence and how it has progressed during that time. I recommend it as a quick and easy primer to acquaint yourself to this code.

Thank you, Jalmar Bowden
