Today’s wildfire environment has changed, allowing for longer fire seasons with more intense and destructive wildfires. Climate change, land use, fire suppression, population growth, and other factors have contributed to putting millions of homes and hundreds of communities at extreme risk of wildfire. During this webinar, the latest in wildfire science and research, statutes, and codes, and best management practices for living and building in wildfire-prone areas are discussed. The 2019 California Building Code: Chapter 7A requirements for exterior protection of structures and the 2019 California Fire Code: Chapter 49 defensible space requirements intended to mitigate wildfire hazards are also discussed. Building and enforcement professionals interested in gaining knowledge on identifying your community’s wildfire hazards, risks, and mitigation strategies are encouraged to attend.
