Learn to Prepare For Wildfires With Firescaping

About this Event

Every year, hundreds to thousands of wildfires occur in each southern state. Conditions that increase wildfire risk, like drought, are expected to become more common in years to come. Homeowners and communities most at risk to wildfire live in the boundary between natural areas, or wildlands, and human development. These areas are known as the Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI). Fortunately, there are actions WUI homeowners and communities can make to protect their homes from wildfire, such as firescaping.

In this training, you will learn about:

Wildland fire history and behavior

Home wildfire risk factors

Plant flammability

Firescape design and maintenance

Firescaping combined with other landscape goals
