Resumo: The Portuguese forest service’s fire management policy has been substantially overhauled in the last few years, and a new emphasis has been put on the wildland-urban interface (WUI). When forest fires break out more frequently next to homes and urban settlements, and become increasingly more dangerous, this constitutes a worrying and important topic, not only in Portugal, but in all Mediterranean countries. The present study consists of mapping, the regulations defined by Decree n. 17/2009, from January 14th, to a map, with detailed representation of secondary networks for fuel-breaks (fuel build-up control) in two contrasting landscapes. The goals of this study were: (i) to transpose the legislation into cartography; (ii) to estimate costs of the creation of the secondary network, based on a very simple assumption of the type of operation to be carried out, (iii) to identify local and regional differences and (iv) to identify local and regional differences and (iv) to compare our mapping with that performed under a Municipal Plan For Forest Protection Against Wildfires. The development of the study took place in two areas, located to the North and Center of Portugal. The results show that the legislation is sufficiently clear to allow for the representation, on a map, of secondary network lanes, in all their representations. They also show that the dimensions of the secondary network, the estimate of costs for the creation of said secondary network and the interventional priority differ, according to the type and landscape
