Wildfires are now more frequent, destructive, and fast-moving than ever. It’s time to adopt a new mindset of making preparedness a daily way of thinking. It’s not a one-time proposition. Learning to live with the risk of wildfire is a daily responsibility.
Make efforts to improve the chances of your home and property withstanding ignition by wildfire. It starts with easy, small steps that can make all the difference.
Berkeley Fire Department's Office of Emergency Services will be hosting three workshops to support residents as they make preparations to make their homes more ignition resistant.
Sheryl Drinkwater—architect, home-hardening expert, and Berkeley resident—will guide community members through a discussion on focused topics that residents can take action on.
- Prior to the first workshop, participants should watch the Home Hardening Town Hall presentation recorded on May 19th.
- Join the workshop for a group discussion on each month’s focused topic.
Join one or all of three workshops:
- July 13th, 6:30 pm - Vents and Property Clean Up (Register)
- September 21st - Decks and Fences (Registration coming soon)
- November 3rd - Windows and Roof (Registration coming soon)
