Home Ignition Zone Training 2019-page-001

The Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Home Ignition Zone Assessment and Strategies is a 3-day training workshop developed by the US-based National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and US National Fire Academy. This training workshop will help you identify hazards and reduce risks from embers in the “home ignition zone” before a wildfire starts. Recent fire science research on embers and fire spread has led to greater understanding of how wildland fires ignite homes. By applying new knowledge of how WUI fires occur and by new approaches, future WUI fires in South Africa can be significantly reduced.
