Register now for NFPA's Assessing Structure Ignition Potential from Wildfire two-day classroom training in Las Vegas, Nevada, on March 12-13. This class will provide valuable skills and knowledge to help you in your wildfire safety mission.
Nevada, California, and other western states have experienced large, destructive wildfires in the past few years that have led to thousands of destroyed homes and businesses. The time is NOW for fire service, facility managers, and insurance and realty professionals to learn how to identify and prevent ignition risks to homes.
Learn the science behind how homes ignite from wildfire. More importantly, find out the best ways to advise property owners about actions that will help prevent ignition and reduce the chances of home destruction during a brush or forest fire.
Discover what others have learned. According to one captain/paramedic, “I thought I wanted to learn about structure triage. What I got was a new mindset concerning how to approach wildland fire (operational) and people (social).”
Another fire captain commented, “I am better prepared to assess WUI properties and communicate hazards to community members.”
