University of Nevada, Reno Extension’s Living With Fire (LWF) Program presents an online workshop series: “Living With Fire Virtual Series.” The online series features one or two monthly workshops from April – October 2021. The series covers presentations about landscaping, wildfire preparedness, fire weather, smoke impacts and more.

The seventh session, “Home Hardening Q&A” is Aug. 12,  from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Zoom.  Living With Fire will host a question and answer (Q&A) workshop with Dr. Steve Quarles, University of California Cooperative Extension Advisor Emeritus and the retired Chief Scientist for Wildfire and Durability, Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety Research Center.

The Q&A session will be focused on home hardening, or building or retrofitting homes to withstand wildfire. To watch a former presentation on this topic, view the link: bit.ly/HardenHomes
