How to Respond to Wildfires

Both the number and intensity of wildfires in the United States is increasing. Is your community prepared to respond?

Join us for a discussion of the need for all-hazard disaster planning, with an emphasis on wildfires. We’ll review critical components of wildfire response:

  • Preparedness locally, regionally and state-wide
  • Equipment
  • Training for responders
  • Response team composition
  • Hazards and team safety
  • Assessment

Find out how to tap into national and regional resources available to you, such as Animal Search and Rescue (ASAR) teams and the National Capabilities for Animal Response in Emergencies (NCARE) survey results.

Animal welfare organizations, county and state response teams and emergency management professionals will especially benefit from this free, 60-minute webinar. Individuals looking for opportunities to join disaster response efforts will find this webinar helpful.
