Vendors

The Great Plains Fire Safe Council will be hosting this two day workshop to enhance awareness of wildfire prevention and mitigation programs. We hope to accomplish this by showcasing national and regional Prevention and Mitigation efforts and materials, related vendors, consultants and exhibitors.

The target audience for this conference is fire officials, home owner’s association representatives, state and federal representatives and other individuals that have an interest in the wildfire prevention and mitigation concepts. Many of these individuals will be responsible for implementing programs and making decisions for their organizations or even applying Firewise practices at their own homes. The conference will cover topics such as mitigation practices, assessing the Home Ignition Zone, engaging youth in wildfire prevention, wildfire prevention techniques, utilizing the digital age for wildfire prevention, developing wildfire props, how to deliver the fire prevention message as a first responder and influence behavior. Conference organizers estimate the attendance to be between 100-150 attendees.
