Turning the question of wildfire mitigation on its head

Blog Post created by Lisa Marie Sinatra Employee on Sep 18, 2012

Why does the U.S. continue to lose so many homes in spite of all of its good mitigation efforts? It’s the question Molly Mowery explores in her latest NFPA Journal® column, which highlights the fact that while WUI communities struggle with increasing risk factors including poor forest health and warming trends, still more success stories from local, state and federal agencies around the country showcase how and when safety mitigation works.

Read Molly’s latest Wildfire Watch column and think about your response if someone asked you this question. Got an idea? Share your answers with us! We’d love to hear from you.
