Wildfire has become one of the largest sources of greenhouse gases in California and the world, potentially jeopardizing our ability to reach our carbon reduction targets. In this course, an interdisciplinary team of experts discuss the inter-relatedness of zero net carbon design and wildfire resilience and share best practice design solutions, explore the effects of wildfires on carbon emissions and air quality, offer advice regarding hardening of buildings to wildfire ignition, and discuss the importance of landscape design in the prevention of building ignition.
Upon successful completion of a multiple-choice quiz, a Certificate of Completion will be available for download and can be used to verify your licensure requirements.
