Over 145 people from 25 states and international have registered so far. 

Wildfire expert Pat Durland will determine truth or hooey to questions we all have, drawing upon his long career as a smokejumper, wildland firefighter, policy maker, insurance consultant, and wildland fire planner and educator.

We’re been receiving additional questions that will be put to the test. Is a green shrub that much of a fire hazard?  Do all-wooden fences attached to the structure pose a fire risk?  How effective is defensible space in high wind situations? What about roof sprinkler systems?

If you have a question or theory you’ve heard of and always wanted to “Ask an Expert” about, submit it to LDeaton@nfpa.org and it will be put to the test!

Registration is open
