Invite your friends and neighbors to attend Backyards & Beyond

Blog Post created by faithberry Employee on Aug 14, 2015


I know that we all want to make sure that our family, friends, pets and community are safe.  By growing in knowledge about sound principles to be acted upon we can implement change to protect those we care about and our property from the devastating effects of wildfire. 

What better environment to learn about the latest research, products and methods to motivate successful local wildfire preparedness than NFPA's Backyards & Beyond Conference?

Some of this year’s unique class offerings include the latest research about how wildfire spreads, land use planning, GIS mapping, preparedness for children’s services, rural communities and agricultural fires, how to use LIDAR data for community assessments and more. 

The speakers are from Massachusetts, South Carolina, Georgia, Idaho, Colorado, California, Texas and other locations, just to name a few. They reflect the diverse challenges and solutions that you can discover in these sessions and bring back to your community.

Not only can you network with other successful Firewise community members, researchers and fire department officials, but you can also enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  I think you'll want to enjoy this opportunity with family and neighbors as you explore the area and learn about wildfire preparedness. 

Register soon to insure that you get the early bird discount rate. Don't miss your opportunity to be a part of the only conference that brings together all who are affected by wildfire.
