The threat of wildfires impacts camps in the west more each year.  This webinar explores wildland fire preparation, response and recovery from four critical perspectives: Public Policy, Fire Service, Insurance and Camp Experience.   Our panel of experts will answer your questions and provide insight and practical information for camps to proactively manage the risks associated with wildfire.  We will also dedicate time for participants to share their own knowledge and learn from each other in a virtual meet up discussion at the end of the event.  This program is designed with western region camps in mind and all are welcome.

  1. Identify gaps in coverage.
  2. Utilize resources for safety planning.
  3. List prevention steps and recovery strategies.
  4. Understand how to adjust current plans regarding training, practice, fuel mitigation and support.
