The Wildland Division provides information, assistance, and recommendations to homeowners and landowners with property in areas where forest fires are a danger.


The Santa Fe Fire Department (SFFD) is proud to be one of the only fire departments in New Mexico to have ten full-time that specialize in fuel management in the Wildland Urban Interface and respond to wildland fires. Our Wildland Urban Interface program will conduct individual home assessments to evaluate your wildland fire risk and hazard and provide wildfire information for homeowner's associations and public events. Through grants awarded from the US Forest Service and NM State Forestry, the SFFD Wildland Division can conduct hazardous fuels reduction on projects prioritized in the Santa Fe Fireshed or within the city limits.  If you are interested in participating in our hazardous fuels reduction program, complete the Landowner Request for Assistance Form and submit it to Wildland Superintendent Nathan Miller at or call 505-955-3901.

To set up a home assessment, get a copy of your completed assessment, or schedule an informational presentation, email Wildland Urban Interface Specialist Porfirio Chavarria at or call 505-955-3119.
