This national level training from Coalitions & Collaboratives, Inc. is designed for current or future mitigation specialists, wildfire program leads, and others who work with residents and their communities, to be more efficient and effective at reducing wildfire risk from the public and nonprofit mitigation sectors. Mitigation Best Practices Training concentrates on science, methods and tools demonstrated to engage communities/residents, to eliminate ineffective practices and get community fire adaptation actions accomplished on-the-ground. Participants should come with a basic understanding of how homes burn and vegetation management best practices. The course assumes you know how to mitigate, but that you could use support engaging your community. In this workshop, you will work through some of the greatest challenges to stimulating mitigation. The course will help you break down ineffective practices to make space for the more effective ones.
The training has limited seats available and students will be invited to participate on a first come, first served basis.
