Blog Post created by Cathy Prudhomme Employee on Jun 29, 2017

NFPA’s Firewise USA program has partnered with the Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) to produce a series of five monthly Wildfire Research Fact Sheets. The first edition was released today and focuses on roofing materials.


Each month the series will highlight a component of the home that has been researched by IBHS. Future editions will include: Vents, Decking, Fencing and Coatings.


The fact sheets are downloadable and available in a format that provides wildfire stakeholders with the ability to add their logo.


Every edition will provide residents living in areas with a wildfire risk with important research information they can incorporate into the risk reduction projects they’re implementing at their personal residences. They also provide forestry agencies and fire departments with a valuable tool that can be added to their websites and used as a community handout/resource.
