The 2018 California wildfires broke records in terms of home destruction and loss of lives.

National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is a global nonprofit organization, established in 1896, devoted to eliminating death, injury, property and economic loss due to fire.

Michele Steinberg Wildfire Division Director for NFPA came on the program to discuss fire prevention tips for homeowners. Potential projects range from simple yard cleanup, to learning potential evacuation routes, and scheduling an insurance checkup.
