Thursday, April 29 at 1 PM

The Camp Fire ignited on November 8, 2018 in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in Butte County, California. The fire impacted the communities of Concow, Paradise and Magalia. It became the most destructive and deadly fire in California history resulting in more than 18,000 destroyed structures, 700 damaged structures, and 85 fatalities.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has engaged in a multi-year study to understand the Camp Fire and its lessons for fire spread in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI), fire behavior, community evacuation, and responses to structure fires caused by wildland fires.

The IAFC invites you to attend a joint presentation by NIST and the U.S. Fire Administration at 1:00 pm (Eastern) on Thursday, April 29 to discuss the findings of the study and what they mean for local fire departments.

The list of presenters will include:

  • Chief Tonya Hoover, (Acting) U.S. Fire Administrator
  • Chief Erik Litzenberg, Chair, IAFC Wildland Fire Policy Committee
  • Alexander Maranghides, Fire Protection Engineer, NIST
  • Eric Link, Fire Protection Engineer, NIST
