RedZone is happy to be taking part in the annual Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Conference to be held this year in late March at the Peppermill Resort in Reno, Nevada. This event, hosted by The International Association of Fire Chief’s (IAFC), offers invaluable hands-on training and interactive sessions designed to address the various challenges presented by wildland fire.
The WUI conference brings together wildland firefighters, federal and state-agency personnel, and land-use community planners to collaborate on emerging issues in wildland fire management. Attendees are able to make valuable industry connections while learning the latest in wildfire tools and strategies.
“The IAFC Wildland Urban Interface Conference is integral in helping me to learn about new science and innovative projects that are helping to drive us forward”, says Clark Woodward, RedZone’s CEO. “I have been attending for years and never fail to learn something new.”
Those responsible for protecting local forests or educating landowners and communities about the importance of land management may want to consider attending.
Led by industry experts, sessions and workshops are divided into three tracks:
- Fire adapted communities
- Operations and suppression
- Wildland fire policy and tools
Learn – Topics include innovative Programs such as Ready, Set, Go! and the FAC Learning Network will be covered. Operational considerations such as lessons learned from Type 1 IC’s and tactical operations in Open Space Islands will also be covered.
Connect – Federal, state and local wildland fire personnel come together in a collaborative environment for idea sharing and future planning.
See – The Exhibit Hall provides a great opportunity to explore the tools, technologies and resources available to help you mitigate and respond to WUI challenges.
