11/16 - APA Chapter Webcast: Planning for Wildfire Resiliency (1.5 | CM)

Updated: Jan 2, 2020

From 1980 through October 2018, there have been 16 wildfire events with losses exceeding $1 billion. At the same time, the total footprint of the wildland-urban interface is growing, as are the number of homes in that interface. This has implications for wildfire and emergency management, as a growing number of people are in harm’s way. This webinar will explore the role of planners and land use planning in building communities resilient to wildfires.

Hosted by the APA Hazard Mitigation and Disaster Recovery Division

Speaker: Molly Mowery, AICP

CM: 1.5
