Do you have a great story, experience or case study you would like to share at the 2015 Backyards & Beyond Conference in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina? Learn more about how to submit your session proposals. Deadline is Friday, August 29, 2014.

NFPA’s bi-annual Backyards & Beyond Wildland Fire Education Conference is a great place for community leaders, researchers, insurance professionals, emergency responders, homeowners and others involved in wildfire safety and preparedness to share their knowledge and best practices on key wildfire issues that they can then take back to their communities and workplace.

At the NFPA’s 2013 "Backyards & Beyond" conference in Salt Lake City, nearly 300 participants attended more than 50 breakout sessions in five different tracks that touched on everything from defensible space and volunteerism to community planning and evacuation. Some of the top names in the industry also provided insight into many of the most talked about wildfire issues today including climate change, wildfire policies and practices, insurance and the environment.

We look forward to hearing from you!
