FIREWISE WORKSHOP (NOVATO)

For Neighborhood Leaders interested in organizing a Firewise community

Please join us on Friday, March 8, 2019 from 9am-11am, at Marin Valley Community Center in Novato. 

FIRESafe MARIN will host a community workshop to help Marin neighborhoods organize to achieve Firewise USA® recognition. Learn about the benefits and challenges of Firewise recognition for your neighborhood, while preparing a plan to help your community survive a wildfire. We'll have representatives from every Marin fire department, land management agencies like MMWD and Open Space, PG&E, and others to help you understand Marin's wildfire risk and develop a neighborhood-scale plan to address the risk.

The NFPA's Firewise USA® program is a process that empowers neighbors to work together in reducing their wildfire risk. Join the growing network of more than 1,400 recognized Firewise USA® communities (including 30 neighborhoods in Marin, more than any other county in California!) taking action and ownership in preparing and protecting their homes against the threat of wildfire.

This workshop is intended for neighborhood leaders interested in organizing a Firewise effort in their community - it's not a class for individual homeowners looking for wildfire safety tips. Look for homeowner preparedness classes beginning spring 2019 at www.firesafemarin.org.

Parking is VERY limited – please carpool! Classroom presentation: 9:00am - 11:00am; Q&A and meet with local agencies: 11:00am - 12:00pm.
