Home Ignition Zone (HIZ) Workshop
While wildfires are a problem in virtually every part of the US, research has lead to a greater understanding of how wildland fires ignite homes. There are many steps that can be taken to reduce losses; this two-day workshop will help you to identify the hazards and reduce risks in the home ignition zone (HIZ) before a wildfire starts. By applying this knowledge of how wildland-urban interface (WUI) fires occur and by using new approaches, future WUI fire disasters can be significantly reduced.
As part of the curriculum, the HIZ workshop incorporates NFPA 1141, Standard for Fire Protection Infrastructure for Land Development in Suburban and Rural Areas, and NFPA 1144, Standard for Reducing Structure Ignition Hazards from Wildland Fire, as the basis for assessing hazards and recommending appropriate mitigation measures to reduce wildfire risks to homes, developments, communities, and subdivisions and to increase awareness among residents and communities.
