July 2019. Registration is now open for the Southwest Montana Building for Wildfire Summit in Big Sky, Montana, on Wednesday, September 18, 2019. The Building for Wildfire Summit is an opportunity for developers, contractors, architects, landscapers, local businesses, and others in Montana’s construction industry to learn from wildfire experts and researchers about best practices for building homes to wildfire-resistant standards. Community leaders from other mountain resort towns will discuss lessons learned and opportunities for mitigating wildfire risks alongside increasing home development. Key objectives include understanding how homes ignite, identifying the most vulnerable components of a home to wildfires, and identifying best practices and lessons learned from other resort towns working to become wildfire-resilient. The event is free and open to the public.
