Listening to the newest installment in our series of virtual workshops, is a lot like spending time on a favorite neighbor’s front porch and hearing firsthand about a life altering experience that compels you to prioritize changes within your own life. Featured workshop presenter Linda Masterson, uses the personal experience of losing her home and almost everything she owned during a 2011 wildland fire to teach homeowners living with a wildfire risk, how they can improve their own chances of creating an entirely different outcome.

Masterson has a genuine desire to reach others through her messages that stress the importance of mitigation and preparedness actions; along with steps on how-to navigate post-fire impacts and issues. 

Accolades about the workshop demonstrate its power to motivate those living in an environment where wildfires exist to take active ownership in making changes that could change the outcome of future fires:  

This presentation was fantastic…We had a huge wildfire at Bass Lake yesterday…I want to send the program to our 40+ homeowners ASAP. The right time is right NOW!

I just watched the Workshop video with Linda Masterson. Really, really excellent. This one was very powerful and brought up lots of worthwhile information in a very motivating way.
