September is National Preparedness Month and this year’s theme is Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare. Join Firewise Communities/USA® residents and wildfire stakeholders in an hour-long preparedness workshop September 16, with author Linda Masterson, as she shares her experience of losing her home in a 2011 wildfire.
What she learned as she navigated through the evacuation, recovery and rebuilding stages is something all residents living with a wildfire risk need to know. She shares the importance of being prepared long before the fire happens and explains how to accomplish it. Masterson’s real-life experience will motivate residents to embrace mitigation and proactively implement actions during Preparedness Month.
