MITIGATION BEST PRACTICES
Reno, Nevada

The biggest barrier to community fire adaptation is not motivation or desire at the community level; it’s local capacity. The fire world has spent billions developing a state-of-the art wildfire response infrastructure. Conversely, very little has been spent to build, maintain, and strengthen a national infrastructure to support community wildfire risk reduction. Mitigation efforts are unorganized, spotty, starving for knowledge, training, and funding, and they continue to spend most of their time looking for funds and relying on ineffective methods. Some are successful, many are not.

This 2 day pre-conference training incorporates “what we know” and “what works” into a comprehensive training program that dives into the following topics: Community Wildfire Protection Plans, messaging and engagement, collaboration, partnerships, community fire adaptation, building capacity, home assessments and site visits. If you are faced with a mitigation challenge, come with questions.

AFTER THE FLAMES
Conference & Workshop

Experts warn that year-round fire season is the new normal. Wildfire is no longer “if” it will occur, but rather “when.” Wildfires burned 9,781,062 acres in 2017. The aftermath leads to flooding, emotional distress, and the need for leaders to support the recovery process. Coming together with industry experts will allow us to utilize lessons learned from others and have better planning for each recovery process.
