Cutting through the myths of forest fires in Canada - Webinar (EST)
Date and Time: mars 23, 2022 1 pm - 3 pm EST

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.
