Event Details:
May 22nd WRP Natural Resources and Military Readiness, Homeland Security, Disaster Preparedness and Aviation (MRHSDP&A) Committee webinar on wildfire and forestry. This webinar will run from 12:30 to 2 pm Pacific. This webinar will explore current issues impacting wildfire and forestry within the west and opportunities to improve forest management and collaboration.  Wildfires continue to be significant issues in the western region.  Given the drought and impacts from overstocked/unhealthy forests and Wildland/Urban Interface, there have been longer fire seasons and an increasing overall number of fires and number of large/damaging fires. For example, ten of California’s 20 largest wildfires occurred in the last 10 years. This webinar will be conducted by Chief Ken Pimlott, State Forester, CA Department of Forestry & Fire Protection, Mr. Mike Zupko, Executive Manager, Wildland Fire Leadership Council and Mr. Troy Timmons, Director of Strategic Initiatives, Policy Advisor, Western Governors’ Association (WGA).
