ALERTWildfire is a program developed and operated through a partnership between three universities; The University of Nevada Reno, University of California San Diego, and the University of Oregon. The network provides access to a state-of-the-art camera network that assists first responders and the public be more informed about current weather and fire conditions.
In partnership with the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, a team of UCSB graduate students are surveying local communities in order to learn about what plants are commonly found near homes. The results of this survey will help the researchers choose plants for future flammability testing. Click HERE to complete the survey.
