Description

IS YOUR COMMUNITY PREPARED?

Wildfire has no boundaries, the season is longer and fires are bigger. With these changes the importance of interdisciplinary planning for wildfire at the edges of development is growing. It will take all of us to make sure our communities are prepared to respond to a wildfire for best possible outcomes.

WHO should attend?

Whether you’re a homeowner, city planner, business owner, rancher, county commissioner, public works engineer, city police or fire, this workshop is for you.




TIME: 10AM – 2PM
DATE: THURSDAY, APRIL 18th

*LUNCH PROVIDED
RSVP by Tues, April 16th so we have enough lunch!
