VIDEO. From the Cal Fire Brews and Views presentation held at the Half Moon Bay Brewery on Thursday, May 11th, 2023 at 6:00pm.
Brews & Views welcomes Deputy Fire Marshal with CAL FIRE/Coastside Jordan Motta, UC Master Gardeners Cynthia Nations, Alison Williams, and Stephanie Erskine for a discussion about living in the Wildland Urban Interface, Defensible Space, and Home Hardening.
The Coastside is located in the Wildland-urban interface; a zone of transition between wilderness and land developed by human activity – an area where a built environment meets or intermingles with a natural environment. Human settlements in the WUI are at a greater risk of catastrophic wildfire. Hear from Deputy Fire Marshal Motta and UC Master Gardeners on current research-based information for sustainable landscape practices, as well as how we can protect our homes, businesses, and community.
