In 2015, the Firewise program presented another successful series of educational virtual workshops that included engaging topics presented by leading researchers and practitioners. Each workshop provided stakeholders with useful and important wildfire information and actions residents can take to reduce risk. Every workshop is a live interactive sixty minute session that can be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection and is recorded for future usage.
The 2016 series begins in May and proposed topics include:
- New information from top wildland fire researchers
- Emerging topics in the insurance industry as they relate to homeowner’s living in the wildland/urban interface
- Wildland Urban Legends Part 2 (due to the popularity of Wildland Urban Legends a new version has been added to the schedule)
In addition to these three topics, you now have an opportunity to make suggestions on what the topic should be for the fourth workshop. Submit your suggestions for topics and/or a speaker and check back soon to see if yours was selected. Send your idea/s to Firewise@nfpa.org.
If you missed a 2015 or 2014 workshop they can accessed through the recorded archives.
