In the last five years, wildfires have devastated cities and caused loss of life, lasting health effects, and major property damage for many areas in Western North America. While we may not be able to prevent the disaster, we can build on the recent experience of others directly affected.

This conference will bring together public and environmental health providers, emergency responders, experts in community recovery, and disaster cleanup professionals to present the latest tools, concepts, and approaches to help us understand the community effects of wildfire and better prepare for the future. 

Presentations and discussions will cover:
  • Post-fire Conditions
  • Initial Response and Planning Recovery
  • Safe and Effective Cleanup
  • Community Health and Effects
  • Case Studies from CA counties that have been affected
