Structural hardening webinar

Fire Safe Sonoma will be presenting a Structural Hardening Webinar at 3 p.m. on May 18 via Zoom. The presentation will be will be at least one hour long and will be a combination of a live presentation and a PowerPoint slide presentation with at least 15 minutes for Q&A.

Hardening a home to withstand wildland fire exposure does not have to be costly, but it does require an understanding of the exposures your home will experience when threatened by a wildfire. This webinar on wildfire resiliency will increase your understanding of the exposures your home faces when threatened by a wildfire and will focus on home hardening projects that will reduce your wildfire risks.

The presenter is David Shew. Shew is recently retired from CAL FIRE after 31 years of service. He is currently a wildland fire safety consultant and is the owner of Wildfire Defense Works, LLC, and serves as a board member with the California Fire Safe Council. Shew has a demonstrated history of working in the public safety industry. He is skilled in public safety, emergency management, emergency preparedness, and disaster response. Shew is a strong community and social services professional with a Bachelor of Architecture focused in Architecture from University of Cincinnati, College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning.
