FIRESafe MARIN is honored to host well-known wildfire scientists Jack Cohen and Steve Quarles, along with our own Todd Lando for a deep dive discussion on the concepts of defensible space, focusing on the near-home non-combustible zone and the importance of the first 5 feet.
We'll cover the history of our understanding of how homes ignite (and how recent wildfires have changed our understanding), the current state of science regarding near-home combustibles and ember ignition, and practical steps a homeowner can take to protect their home from embers.
Jack Cohen - Fire Scientist (retired) US Forest Service
Steve Quarles - Chief Scientist (retired) IBHS
Todd Lando - Wildfire Hazard Mitigation Specialist/Battalion Chief
