Be Wildfire Ready
Designate a clean room to offer a space with fresh air to building occupants.
Even if a fire does not cause closures or evacuations, smoke and smog can often reach unhealthy levels. Offering occupants a "clean room" with freshly filtered air on-site may help reduce acute and chronic health problems from being exacerbated by fire byproducts and particulates in the air.
Whether you are a home or business owner wondering what you can do to reduce damage and loss, or a fire service, insurance, or community safety professional who needs to assess and communicate risk factors and potential mitigation options, NFPA has the training you need.
This interactive NFPA® training, based on scientific research on how homes and other structures ignite during wildfires and NFPA 1144, Standard for Reducing Ignition Hazards from Wildland Fire, covers wildfire behavior, structure exposure, and the concepts of the Home Ignition Zone and Structure Ignition Potential.
SPA is pleased to offer member districts the initial 2-day Fire and Smoke Restoration Technician (FSRT) course presented live online through the Zoom platform on June 16 and 17, 2021.
