San Gabriel Valley
Wildfire Adaptation Summit

 

Thursday July 14th, 2022 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM

Following the 2020 Bobcat Fire in the San Gabriel Mountains, the SGVCOG identified a need for a regional program to provide wildfire adaptation and prevention resources to cities and residents. To mark the launch of this program, the SGVCOG is bringing together expert panelists to discuss how cities and communities can help support successful wildfire programs and prevent future wildfires.
