Firewise Education and Tours

Our region now faces a 365-days-a-year fire season with devastating and potentially deadly consequences. There are, however, steps Angelenos can take to protect properties, mitigate the region’s fire danger, and increase the city’s resilience. Architects, builders, developers, urban planners and landscapers have critical roles to play and that’s why the green building community is taking action.

USGBC-LA’s first-annual 2020 Firewise Tours will take place in Summer and Fall and illustrate the latest home-hardening and firewise landscaping strategies to the public. These tours will be supported by webinars and additional in-person training designed to dispel myths and offer clear, substantive guidance for fire mitigation and safety.
