About this group
Our goal is to teach the homeowner how to live more safely in wildfire prone areas and provide current information to extension educators for use in their outreach programs. Specific goals include assembling, summarizing, developing and delivering educational materials related to:
- Pre-fire actions that reduce the wildfire threat to homes and other property.
- Homeowner actions when the wildfire threat is imminent, including information on evacuation and staying to defend your home.
- Post-fire actions pertinent to homeowners and their property.
- Social science aspects of implementing plans to reduce the wildfire threat to your home.
Relevant discipline areas include vegetation management, the fire resistance of building materials, extension education and social sciences.
