On Wednesday, June 27, I'll join Allison Berry of the Sonoran Institute and Jill Alexander of Douglas County,
Colorado, to provide information about Firewise principles during a live web presentation hosted by Western Lands and Communities.
A joint venture of the the Sonoran Institute and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, Western Lands and Communities focuses on shaping growth, sustaining cities, protecting resources, and empowering communities in the Intermountain West. Its "Successful Communities Online Toolkit information exchange" or SCOTie is a great web resource for information about all kinds of issues confronting communities in the Western U.S., including wildfire. NFPA's Wildland Fire Operations Division is pleased to provide source information to expand SCOTie's resources on wildland fire challenges and solutions.
