The 2022 fire season has begun early in Northern Arizona, as the Crooks Fire near Prescott and the Tunnel Fire near Flagstaff have unfortunately shown.
On Thursday May 26 from 10:00 – 11:30 the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) will host a community conversation to discuss how the Verde Valley can best prepare for fire season. The session will take place in Room 34 at Yavapai College, 4215 Arts Village Drive in West Sedona. The session is free and open to the public.
During this panel discussion, attendees will learn about the current threat of wildland fire in the Verde Valley, how residents can prepare for the threat of wildland fire and how the various governmental agencies are coordinating their response to wildland fires.
The session will be moderated by Keep Sedona Beautiful President Craig Swanson. Panelists will include representatives from the National Forest Service, the Sedona Fire District, the Sedona Police Department and the Sedona Uptown Community. Attendees will have ample opportunity to pose questions to panelists on these issues.
