Wildland Fire Community Engagement and Data Visualization Tools

Webinar //

Date:

May 20 2020, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST

Description

This EPA Tools and Resources Webinar webinar will highlight two wildland fire smoke and health projects. Smoke Sense is a crowdsourcing, citizen science app which engages the public to broaden awareness of wildland fire smoke locally as well as health protective measures and behaviors.

Presenters will share findings from the past two wildfire seasons including community engagement and data visualization tools. The Smoke Ready Communities project offers a model and framework to help communities improve their response. It supports collaboration and capacity building and also fosters preparedness and response to wildfire smoke episodes. The webinar also will feature a solutions-driven approach for helping reduce the public health burden of smoke intrusion at the community level. Participants will learn about how these projects can integrate a community capacity lens with resources specifically related to wildland fire smoke, air quality and health.

Who should attend?

State and local governments, tribes, and others interested in learning more about community engagement and data visualization tools for wildland fires.
