After The Flames
Webinar Series: Fluvial Hazard Zone Mapping

Thursday, August 13, 2020, 1:00-3:00 PM MDT

Featuring a demonstration of the Colorado Water Conservation Board methodology and how it can be transferred to other locations. FHZ delineations can identify areas that are vulnerable to flooding and sedimentation that occur after a wildfire, thereby directing the deployment of resources after a fire into watersheds that have the most at-risk assets downstream. In wildfire susceptible areas, the FHZ mapping process can help direct stakeholders toward conservation and rehabilitation of areas critical for the storage of sediment and debris (e.g., areas upstream of vulnerable communities and/or water storage facilities).

The Mitigation Best Practices Training will be conducted in Google Classroom over a seven week period from August 3 – September 18, 2020.

THIS COURSE IS CURRENTLY FULL. REGISTRATIONS ARE STILL BEING ACCEPTED FOR THE WAITLIST.

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.
