Mitigation Best Practices Training
September 13 – November 14, 2021.
This national level training from Coalitions & Collaboratives, Inc. and the USDA Forest Service is designed for current or future mitigation specialists, wildfire program leads, and others who work with residents and their communities to reduce wildfire risk. The Mitigation Best Practices training concentrates on science, methods and tools that will help you engage communities/residents while also helping you to eliminate ineffective practices.
Participants should come with a basic understanding of wildfire, how homes burn, and vegetation management 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 facing our wildland urban interface communities. The course will help you break down ineffective practices to make space for the more effective ones with a focus on the on-the-ground mitigation activities.
Thank you for your interest in the Mitigation Best Practices Training. The course is currently at capacity. We urge you to still register in order to be placed on the waitlist. If anyone drops the course, we will notify you immediately of your eligibility.
We will be hosting a two-day, short version of the course at the WUI Conference in Reno, Nevada, November 12 through 13.

Participation in the course is limited to individuals actively engaged in mitigation. Selection to participate in the training will be based on your answers provided and on submission date.
