About this Event

There are simple and often inexpensive ways to make homes safer from wildfire. With a good understanding of wildfire hazards and mitigation strategies, community residents can effectively lower the wildfire risk and losses to their homes, neighborhoods, and natural resources.

Changing this impact to communities and residents begins with a consistent understanding of the basics of how wildfires ignite structures combined with scientifically proven mitigation actions.

The Wildfire Home Protection Strategies class is based on fire science research into how homes and other structures ignite during wildfires as well as information on wildfire behavior, structure exposure, and the concepts of defensible space. You’ll learn how to analyze wildfire risks to structures, provide actionable advice to property owners, and how to take action in your community.
