Cutting through the myths of forest fires in Canada - Webinar (EST)
Virtual - On Your Computer
Date and Time: March 23, 2022 1 pm - 2 pm EST
From an early age, we have been taught that fire is bad. Nothing good
comes from fire, or so we are told, including fire in the wildlands.
But when we speak of Canada’s boreal
forest, nothing could be farther from the truth. Without fire, we wouldn’t have
the boreal ecosystem or, perhaps, any ecosystems at all. We need fire on the
landscape, so we must, therefore, learn to coexist with fire.
Join Glenn McGillivray, Managing Director
of the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction (ICLR) and Adjunct Professor,
Disaster & Emergency Management, Grad Program, York University, where he
will review the many myths and misconceptions surrounding the hazard of wildland
fire in Canada. He will discuss current trends with regard to fire, including
taking a look at some of the larger wildfire losses Canada has experienced in
recent history. He will also look at the work currently being done to better
understand how wildland fire enters communities and what can be done to prevent
losses of structures during "interface" fire events.
