It was great to have Sydney Chamberlin from The Nature Conservancy to join us at the March 24, 2022. Her presentation focused on a project she helped lead quantifying the benefits of buffers around communities and the impacts these buffers have on reducing wildfire risk. After her presentation, Santa Barbara County Fire Deputy Fire Marshal Fred Tan provided a local example of how the Fire Department can assist a property owner who was having trouble receiving reasonable insurance coverage even though the wildfire threat was relatively minimal.
