A free community wildfire awareness event is being hosted by the Coconino County Flood Control District this Friday, 6 p.m. at the Orpheum Theater in Flagstaff. The purpose of this event is to provide the community with an opportunity to learn more about fire and flood preparedness, connect with local leadership, and build resilience. The evening will consist of tabling from statewide organizations, a short film on the current state of wildfires in the West, a keynote presentation from Flagstaff author John Vankat on the history of the region’s forest health, and a Q&A with a panel of regional experts from the field of forest management, fire management, emergency response and more.
All are welcome and we highly encourage you to join us and help spread the word. Be Resilient, Be Prepared, Be Informed!
