Join the Firewise Virtual Workshop on November 19

Are you the local spark plug in your community? Are you looking for new and innovative ways to engage your neighbors?
On Thursday, November 19, at 10:00 am, Firewise will host a virtual workshop on “How to Ignite Your Community – in Building Action and Trust for Preparedness”. This “Ask an Expert” workshop will be led by Lt. Tim Weaver of the Rapid City, South Dakota, Fire Department, who will share lessons learned for both the homeowner and local agency in Firewise and Fire Adapted Communities efforts. He will share his experience in gaining residential trust around wildfire mitigation requests, and his agency work with local officials in developing mitigation solutions.

If you have a question about engaging neighbors in preparedness or building partnership with another local agency, this is your chance to “Ask an Expert”. Simply email your question to LDeaton@nfpa.org. The top submissions will be highlighted and put to Lt. Weaver for answer in the workshop.

Registration for “How to Ignite Your Community – in Building Action and Trust for Preparedness” is now open.
