Interest in next week’s Firewise Virtual Workshop: Understanding How Embers Ignite Roofs in a Wildland Fire and How to Make Your Roof More Survivable has been exceptionally strong. Limited openings remain for this live one-hour event – register now to attend! 

The one-hour format includes a thirty minute presentation by Dr. Steve Quarles with the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety where he assists with research on building performance with regard to wildfire and moisture exposures; followed by a thirty minute live “Ask an Expert” interactive opportunity for pre-selected homeowners to ask a question related to the session’s topic. This unique learning format provides wildland/urban interface homeowners with information on how to make important mitigation modifications at their homes. 

Following the live workshop, the session in its entirety will be available for viewing.

Plan on also attending the next sesion in the series of “Ask an Expert” Workshops being held August 19 at 2pm MDT. The workshop’s topic is Mulch Combustibility – Choosing the Right Type for Your Wildland/Urban Interface Home. Pre-registration will be available following the July 15 session.
