Wild Fire Preparedness Workshop: Ready, Set Go!

  • Bertram Library Bertram, TX 78605 (map)

Community wildfire readiness is a concept used by local residents, fire and emergency responders, business owners, builders, civic groups, and local leaders who take steps to increase their safety and become prepared for the threat of wildland fire. It’s not a matter of if, but when the next wildland fire will occur in wildland-urban interface (WUI) areas. To create a community ready to face the threat of a wildfire, all audiences must be actively engaged in the solution. Part of this movement comes with an increased understanding of wildland fire. Wildland fires don’t only occur where there is forest vegetation, but include rangelands, grasslands, prairielands, agricultural land, etc. A wildland fire may occur in your back yard and doesn’t need to garner national news to put yourself, your family, your community, and firefighters at risk. This is a great workshop for everyone!
