Title: Cross-Training Professionals on Reducing Property Loss at the Wildland-Urban Interface

Project Proposal Abstract: This project will refine the cross-training of professionals to apply current knowledge about wildland-urban interface property loss reduction. Written curriculum will be developed for one-day interdisciplinary workshops on wildfire property loss reduction, using existing materials that are adapted by local professionals and experienced national/regional experts (locals teaching locals). Workshops will be marketed and conducted for a cross-section of professionals, working through local professional associations to promote and provide certification or sponsorship for the training (locals recognizing local experts). Field projects to design and implement survivable space will give practical experience and demonstrate investments for reducing property loss due to wildfires, in cooperation with insurance agents and realtors (locals making local changes). Social marketing principles will be applied, using existing networks and alliances (professional associations) and locally-adapted versions of nationally-developed materials.
