Lewiston – Wildfire Workshop

Wildfire Workshop - March 15

IS YOUR COMMUNITY PREPARED?

Join this FREE four-hour workshop to learn about what communities
can do to be prepared for wildfire.
WHO should attend?

Whether you’re a homeowner, city planner, business owner, rancher, county commissioner, public works engineer, city police or fire, this workshop is for you.

Wildfire has no boundaries, the season is longer and fires are bigger. With these changes the importance for interdisciplinary planning for wildfire at the edges of development is growing. It will take all of us to make sure our communities are truly prepared to respond to a wildfire for best possible outcomes.

MARCH 15 from 10AM – 2PM

Bell Building 2nd Floor

215 D Street Lewiston, ID 83501
