Design for Wildfire Resilience

June 15th, 2022 12:00pm – 1:30pm

As climate change intensifies, the risk of devastating wildfires around the world will surge in coming decades and is being considered a “global wildfire crisis.” In recent years, California has seen the wildfire season expand beyond a few months to the entire calendar year, and conditions in spring and early summer give an early indication of the severity of what lies ahead. In the case of 2022, the outlook is ominous, and the need for resilience among residential and commercial buildings is becoming essential. This webinar will look at the importance of fire clearance, site design and landscaping as tools for resilience to wildfires.
