The Firewise virtual workshop series provides conference quality, free learning opportunities for wildfire stakeholders, by connecting them with leading researchers and practitioners in a live interactive format. Each session is an hour-long and features a wildfire related topic that closes with questions received directly from participants.

Join guest expert, Gary Marshall, NFPA Wildfire Field Rep, and discover the three distinct areas surrounding structures within a home ignition zone and identify how mitigation and maintenance in each section plays a distinct role in improving survivability during a wildfire. This in-depth look into the three unique distances encompassing a home will have you viewing the landscape through a different set of eyes.

Does foam type insulation have an effect on n/m type wiring in wooden structures' as far as heat dissipation' when the conductor is loaded, and it is completely encapsulated in foam e.g. in stud walls? I see this being done in residences much more often now .Is this a fire hazzard?Should there be special derating for these conditions? Should the wire being used in wood structures in these conditions be of a different type?
