THE ERA OF MEGAFIRES

​SOU Science Building

 
Era of Megafires lecture - The Era of Megafires is a 70 minute, multi-media, traveling presentation hosted by Dr. Paul Hessburg and North 40 productions.  Hessburg draws on his 27 years of conducting fire and landscape ecology research for the Pacific Northwest Research Station and the University of Washington to deliver a fast-moving, short, topic based conversation interspersed with compelling video vignettes.



Firewise Communities is a national program that emphasizes homeowner responsibility and community participation in wildfire home safety. It encourages local solutions for wildfire safety by involving homeowners, community leaders, planners, developers, firefighters, and others in the effort to protect people and property from the risk of wildfire. To save lives and property from wildfire, the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) Firewise Communities program teaches people how to adapt to living with wildfire and encourages neighbors to work together and take action now to prevent losses.
 
Firewise Communities/USA program provides residents of the wildland/urban interface (WUI) with the knowledge and skill necessary to make it happen. By addressing home construction, landscaping and preparedness, Firewise can make the difference. When adequately prepared, a house can withstand a wildland fire without the intervention of the fire service. In fact, a house and its surrounding community can be both Firewise and compatible with the area's ecosystem.

The Firewise Communities/USA recognition program enables communities in all parts of the United States to achieve a high level of protection against wildfire as well as sustainable ecosystem balance.
