When Wildfire Hits: One Community's Journey to Recovery (Recorded)

Planning and preparing for wildfire can feel like a massive endeavor. What can we do? Who can help? How do we continue to build wildfire adapted and prepared communities? Every community is unique; however, you are not alone. We can learn from our neighbors whether they are next door, across the state or even in a different state.

For this webinar, we invited our neighbors from southwest Colorado to tell us their story. Learn how one community was affected by wildfires in 2002 and their journey to come together, rebuild, and take the action needed to save their lives and property from wildfire and the impact their actions had on wildfires in their neighborhoods since.

Presenters: Carrie Berger, Extension Fire Program Manager, Oregon State University; Wildfire Adapted Partnership, Colorado non-profit, Durango; Jenna Trentadue, National Fire Plan Coordinator, Oregon Department of Forestry, Salem
