ACUA Webinar: Learn How to Prepare for a Wildfire Emergency

February 22, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Would you like to engage your fire department, office of emergency management or police department in your community’s Sustainable Jersey program work?

This webinar will help municipalities understand the suite of Emergency Preparedness Wildfire Actions that provide a road map for addressing the issue of managing the increasing risk of forest fire in our communities as climate change impacts the forest resources. The suite of actions include Firewise Community, Ready Set Go! Fire Company, Community Wildfire Protection Plans, and Wildfire Safety Council.
Speakers from Sustainable Jersey staff, NJ Department of Environmental Protection – State Forest Service, NJ Fire Safety Council and Barnegat Fire Company will be on hand to help municipalities to understand their role, where to find technical assistance and funding to complete these actions.

The webinar will also discuss grant funding available from NJDEP Forest Fire Service to develop a CWWP for your municipality.
