What past attendees are saying

"It was very rewarding to hear people talking about their projects and sharing ideas. I came home charged up and ready to share what I learned."

Russ Hobbs, Chief, Kittitas County Fire District 7

The loss of lives, homes and businesses in recent wildfires across California, Arizona and Colorado and in many other states around the country serves as a sobering reminder of the destructive effects of wildfire. It is not a matter of if a wildfires strikes an area but when, and many residents are looking for more information about what they can do to reduce their risk when the next wildfire burns.

NFPA’s bi-annual Backyards & Beyond Wildland Fire Education Conference is a great place for community leaders, researchers, insurance professionals, emergency responders, homeowners and others involved in wildfire safety and preparedness to share their knowledge and best practices on key wildfire issues that they can then take back to their communities and workplace.


Video: Bob Mutch, long-time forest fire researcher and fire management expert, spoke at NFPA's 2013 Backyards & Beyond conference. He said fire community and interface leaders are failing to communicate to policy-makers and interface residents about the enactment of unsustainable fire policies that are producing catastrophic outcomes.
