Are you passionate about protecting lives and properties from the devastating impact of wildfires? Are you eager to stay up-to-date with the latest trends, innovations, and strategies to tackle this pressing issue? If so, we have great news for you!

We are excited to introduce “All Things Wildfire,” a groundbreaking podcast that delves deep into the world of wildfire protection, legislation, actuarial science, and catastrophe modeling, all focused on the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI). Hosted by experts in the field, this podcast aims to provide crucial insights into the ever-evolving challenges and advancements in wildfire management.

We have Frank Frievalt from the Cal Poly Wildland-Urban Interface FIRE Institute (WUI Institute), who brings his extensive experience and expertise to share valuable insights into wildfire protection and risk reduction. Frank has spent over four decades in the fire service, working with various organizations, and has a master’s degree in science from Oklahoma State University. As a prominent figure in wildfire management, Frank is committed to developing sustainable and effective strategies for protecting life and property in the wildland urban interface.

Frank discusses wildfire protection, legislation, actuarial science, and catastrophe modeling related to the wildland-urban interface (WUI). He emphasizes the need to reduce ignition rather than relying solely on suppression to prevent property loss. The podcast explores the challenges faced in protecting communities within the WUI and the importance of consistent mitigation efforts to address the increasing risk posed by wildfires. The discussion also touches on the role of the WUI Institute in collaborating with various stakeholders to develop effective strategies and align policies to safeguard communities in the WUI. Frank introduces the concept of the Hoover Five, which are enabling tasks to close the loop between data-driven risk mitigation, post-fire reconstruction, and refining best practices to improve overall wildfire resilience.

With informative discussions and expert interviews, you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of:

✅ The importance of reducing ignition risks and moving beyond reliance on suppression

✅ Strategies to safeguard communities within the wildland urban interface

✅ The role of actuarial science and data-driven risk mitigation

✅ Innovations in post-fire reconstruction and best practices for wildfire resilience

Join the growing community of wildfire enthusiasts and stakeholders, and discover how we can collectively work towards a safer and more resilient future. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity to gain valuable knowledge from the experts in the field.

Thank you for joining us on the journey of fighting wildfires. We understand that we are in a constant battle with mother nature and things seem hopeless when we have to evacuate, leave our homes, and not know what we will come back to.
