Michele and I gave our talk, Flames in the WUI, at NFPA’s Annual Conference & Expo today. It was a great opportunity to address with our participants some of the problems and challenges we face in regards to the brush, grass and forest fires happening all around the country. We were also able to highlight examples from the state of Florida and what they’re doing to help reduce their risk during wildfire season and beyond. The unfortunate truth is wildfire will occur but as our presentation pointed out, communities, homeowners and even local agencies can reasonably address these issues, including taking advantage of the number of mitigation options available. Check out the Firewise Web site, which lists some of these tools and measures, or stop by our booth (#1219) if you’re at the conference to have a chat and share ideas.
We appreciate those who attended and we look forward to hearing from you!
We hope to see you here!
