Firewise Landscape

Is your home prepared for wildfire? Did you know that embers from a wildfire can travel over a mile and still cause a fire? In this class, we will learn about the science of wildfires and how to prepare your home, landscape, and community for wildfire season. Dr. Jacqualine Grant will discuss how vegetation, construction, and having a safety plan can help you make your home safer during a wildfire event. We will follow with a discussion about what it means to be a fire-adapted community that is prepared to coexist with Utah’s naturally occurring wildland fires. Interested class participants should bring photos of plants or home areas of concern for evaluation by Dr. Grant.

Brochures that describe how to prepare your home for wildfires will be available from firewise.org. This course will be taught on SUU's campus.
