Weather Monitoring & Vegetation Management: Understanding the Wildfire Risk to Utilities and our Communities
A proactive vegetation management program is critical in high fire risk areas. Such programs typically include the trimming and removal of trees and other fuel sources. Available remote environmental sensing technologies exist to determine which areas are driest and more vulnerable to fire ignitions. In this complimentary webinar, you will hear how to use weather predictive services to fully understand risk and develop appropriate action plans to better mitigate wildfire threats. Wildfire experts will examine all the factors that need to be considered when evaluating the overall risk to people, property, assets and infrastructure. Industry professionals will share their real-world experiences and how the lessons learned from decades of confronting aggressive wildfires can be shared to better prepare for what is coming at us – more wildfire! Attend this free webinar for a look at the good, bad & ugly of vegetation management: considering topography and weather plus proximity of new wildfires to the local community.
