Austin has had a wet winter, but things can change quickly when it comes to wildfire – especially during the summer. (Check out our Austin Wildfire Risk Viewer at www.atxfire.com to find out about the wildfire risk in your neighborhood!) This photo is from the 2011 Steiner Ranch wildfire (courtesy of Anna Culina).
Please join us to learn more about wildfire in Austin and what you can do to prepare your home for wildfire.
We will explain your risk, explore the impact of Austin’s rapid population growth on wildfire risk, hear from a wildfire survivor, talk about evacuation, and discuss ways to help your home and family be wildfire resilient.
