Woolsey Fire - 10.jpg

A table and chairs remain standing amid wreckage

California Senator Henry Stern will host a free Facebook Live event on Friday, Oct. 16 at 4 p.m., featuring a how-to workshop on hardening techniques to protect your home against future wildfires.

Stern will be joined by top experts from CalFire, the State Fire Safe Council and the LA County Fire Department. Touring an actual home that survived  the Woolsey Fire near Malibou Lake, Stern and the experts will broadcast live on Facebook and elsewhere, demonstrating how to properly harden a home, create defensible space and better protect a house from wildfires.

The event description says a community member and survivor of the Woolsey Fire will present "five simple, affordable steps you can take to protect your home from the next wildfire."

There will also be information for students and other residents interested in CalVolunteer’s Climate Corps.

Similar workshops and seminars are planned for later in the year, organizers wrote.
