Before Fire Strikes: How to Prepare Your Home & Create a Resilient Rural Landscape
Friday, August 24th , 2018 @ 9:00 am – 4:30 pm
Are you concerned by the threat of wildfire to your community?
Are you wondering what steps you can take to prepare your home or land?
If so, this workshop is for you!
Our ability to live more safely in California’s high fire-hazard environment depends upon our pre-fire activities. Much of Sonoma County is considered a high fire-hazard environment, consisting of urban areas and communities adjacent to wildlands as well as privately owned range and forestlands. This workshop is designed for both urban/suburban homeowners AND rangeland/forest property owners.
UC Cooperative Extension, Sonoma County is committed helping build a more resilient community through our research and educational workshops on natural resource management pre/post wildfire. Attendees will learn how wildfires operate in Sonoma County’s wildland urban interface, how to maintain a fire safe community, and what natural resource management strategies best improve the survivability of people, property, and homes.
