Wildfires: What Utilities Need to Know

January 22 - January 23

The profound threat and costs of fire within our region continues to grow. We are witnessing escalating wildland fire behavior; increasing risks to utility crews and responders; significant loss of homes and property; dramatic growth in suppression costs; rising post-fire impacts; and continued injuries and loss of lives. With public power being thrust into the spotlight, those within the utility sector must act now to avert future disasters and stem the fiery tide. This conference will provide a forum unlike others for collaborative interaction and a focus on the following topics:

  • Vegetation management
  • Prevention and mitigation
  • Fire risk assessment
  • Drones: mapping, modeling, cameras
  • Insurance and legal responsibilities
  • Collaboration with local authorities

Also included will be a panel discussion with utility representatives from throughout the NWPPA region.
