Overview

From 1980 through October 2018, there have been 16 wildfire events with losses exceeding $1 billion. At the same time, the total footprint of the wildland-urban interface is growing, as are the number of homes in that interface. This has implications for wildfire and emergency management, as a growing number of people are in harm’s way. This webinar will explore the role of planners and land use planning in building communities resilient to wildfires.
