Earn valuable Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and expand your knowledge about effective wildfire hazard mitigation techniques at the upcoming 2-day workshop on May 31-June 1 sponsored by the Southwest Missouri Resource Conservation & Development Council and the Missouri Department of Conservation's Forestry Division.

When adequately prepared, a home or structure may be able to withstand a wildland fire without the intervention of the fire service. In fact, a house and its surrounding community can be safe and compatible with the area’s ecosystem. Applying Firewise principles enables communities in all parts of the United States to achieve a high level of protection against wildland/urban interface fire as well as a sustainable ecosystem balance.

Assessing Wildfire Hazards in the Home Ignition Zone is designed for wildland/urban interface coordinators, fire service professionals, urban and state foresters, developers, community planners, insurance professionals, and others who will benefit from understanding how to reduce losses from wildfire.
