The good news is, unlike floods, hurricanes or earthquakes, there are simple and often inexpensive ways to make homes safer from wildfire. With a good understanding of wildfire hazards and mitigation strategies, community residents can effectively lower the wildfire risk and losses to their homes, neighborhoods and natural resources. NFPA recognizes that the change needed to reverse this loss trend begins with a rock-solid understanding of the basics of how wildfires ignite structures combined with scientifically proven mitigation actions.
Our two-day “Assessing Structure Ignition Potential from Wildfire” training is based on research and post fire investigations. These identify the mitigation techniques that are most effective in reducing wildfire damage potential in the home ignition zone (HIZ) – the home itself and everything around it within 100 to 200 feet.
The training is delivered by experienced wildland fire specialists and focuses on both the physical and behavioral sciences behind successful wildfire mitigation. It’s also the only national standardized training that offers factual solutions and action strategies regarding modern wildfire mitigation.
