In honor of Wildfire Awareness Month in the U.S. and to help prepare for a safe season ahead, in May we hosted a four-part webinar series covering all things fire safety. The virtual event covered topics from fire ecology and cultural fire practices to prescription fire and home hardening, and discussed what it takes to build a safe campfire, how to create an emergency evacuation plan, and much more. If you missed out on the live sessions, you can watch them again here!
