The National Fire Protection Association® (NFPA®) and Green Builder Media are proud to announce the publication of a new ebook on wildfire mitigation, Enough Is Enough. The follow-up to NFPA’s popular 2015 book Design With Fire In Mind: Three Steps to a Safer New Home, this book details what needs to be done to prevent loss of property and lives to fire. And its release couldn’t come at a better time: Between the publication of these two books, back-to-back record-setting wildfire seasons in California alone destroyed more than 25,000 residential structures, took more than 100 lives, and resulted in $24 billion in insured property losses.

Boyce Thompson is the author of three books about residential architecture and construction. In his latest, Designing for Disaster: Domestic Architecture in the Era of Climate Change, published by Schiffer in late September, Thompson writes about how to design and build homes that can withstand the growing threat of hurricanes, flooding, wildfires, landslides, and other natural disasters. The cover calls this the most urgent architectural issue of our time. We caught up with the author recently for an interview.
