Ask An Expert Firewise Virtual Workshop Series

Posted by Green Builder Staff

Oct 14, 2016 3:11:19 PM

Hour-long workshops from NFPA designed to connect wildland fire stakeholders with subject matter experts.

The Firewise virtual workshop series provides conference quality, free learning opportunities for wildfire stakeholders, by connecting them with leading researchers and practitioners in a live interactive format. Each session is an hour-long and features a wildfire related topic that closes with questions received directly from participants.


November’s free virtual workshop

Firewise's Wildland "Urban Legends", Thursday, November 17, 3 pm EST (1 pm MST)
Will mulch spontaneously combust in the heat? Are Firewise principles less effective in high wind areas? Is my tile roof safe from embers? Join us as wildfire and home safety myths and beliefs are again put to the test by wildfire expert Pat Durland who will determine truth or falsehood to questions we all have, drawing upon his long career as a smoke jumper, wildland firefighter, policy maker, insurance consultant, and wildland fire educator.  Take lessons and answers back to questions from residents and practitioners alike for your wildfire outreach and mitigation knowledge. Do you have a wildfire “urban legend” you have heard? Please share it with nfpa, and they’ll put it to the test!
