NFPA to present how we can Outthink Wildfire™ at Facebook Live event on February 23
In recent years, the United States has suffered a relentless tally of losses due to wildfire, a trend that experts predict will only continue to grow. On February 23, 2 p.m. ET, we invite you to join us for a Facebook Live event that will kick-off Outthink Wildfire™, a new comprehensive strategy that calls for policy action at all levels of government to end the destruction of communities by wildfire by 2050.
The event will feature remarks and a live Q&A session with our panel of experts, including:
- Jim Pauley, President and CEO, NFPA;
- Roy Wright, President and CEO, Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS);
- Jeffrey D. Johnson, Fire Chief (Ret.), Chief Executive, Western Fire Chiefs Association; and
- Alison Alter, Austin District 10 City Council Member.
Reflecting on the evolving landscape of wildfire, NFPA’s Jim Pauley shared that, “The time is now to face two harsh realities, wildfires are going to happen and the fire service alone lacks the capacity to contain and extinguish these fires at their current pace.” Jim went onto explain that, “Through collaboration that begins with policy implementation, we can reverse this direction of loss and pursue a course of action that will better protect our communities, our citizens, and our first responders.”
Mark your calendars for February 23, 2 p.m. ET and share our Facebook Live invite with your network on social media. Your presence at this event and participation in advocating for change is critical.
Learn more about how you can Outthink Wildfire™ and the change you can bring in local policy action. We look forward to seeing you on February 23.
