Wildfire Planning Workshop

Published by Sarah on

Wildfire Workshop
Remember the Soda fire, 2015 or the Tablerock fire, 2016?


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.

FEB 4th 10AM – 2PM

Canyon County Administration Building

111 N 11th Ave Ste. 130, Caldwell, ID 83605
LUNCH PROVIDED – RSVP by Friday, Feb 1 so we have enough food.
Register to attend

Program: You’ll hear from experts in this field who will share their experience and talk about the various roles we each have to play to help you understand what YOU can do to make your community more resilient to wildfires. You will also receive some resources to take away.
