How to Maximize Wildfire Preparedness & Response
Wildfires are a major challenge for utilities and local agencies managing Wildland Urban Interface (WUI). They threaten public and employee safety, create liability risks, and damage infrastructure. This one-hour learning session will focus on how wildfire management agencies, local fire departments, and utilities are addressing the wildfire event curve head-on with leading monitoring tools and software.
During the on-demand webinar, attendees will learn how to…
- Accelerate wildfire detection and automate forecasting leveraging remote monitoring
