We are happy to announce that the Firewise Program will present another series of online virtual workshops in 2016.

The 2016 five-part series begins in July and will feature a sixty-minute interactive format with the opportunity to ask live questions to the session’s presenter.


The 2016 series will open in late July with a focus on wildfire research topics that impact your home, like mulch and structural risks.  In mid- August, Firewise will explore the home ignition zone concepts that help you assess your wildfire risk on your property – and when you should talk with your neighbor!  In late September, we’ll discuss insurance and how you can be best prepared for a wildfire.  Come October, Firewise will highlight community mitigation success stories from recognized communities, large and small.  The 2016 series will conclude in early November when Firewise examines more Wildland "Urban Legends".
