Backyards and Beyond
NFPA's Backyards & Beyond Wildland Fire Education Conference
Sheraton Salt Lake City Hotel, Salt Lake City, UT
Wildland fires are a serious threat to lives and property in the U.S. In the past decade, wildfires have burned over 59 million acres of land. According to the National Interagency Fire Center, 2012 saw one of the worst fire seasons in decades, with close to 9 million acres burned. Decreasing fire risk in the WUI is a huge challenge, but NFPA's Wildland Fire Operations Division continues to work with organizations across the country and around the globe to raise awareness of wildfire and what communities can do to help lower their risk of damage.
Join NFPA in Salt Lake City for the 5th Backyards & Beyond Wildland Fire Education Conference, November 14 – 16, 2013. Share your knowledge, build relationships, explore key issues and learn about important wildfire mitigation tools and resources to help you and your community prepare for and adapt to living with wildfire.
