Staff for Assemblyman Brian Nestande, R-Palm Desert, are touting a Fire Suppression Policy Roundtable on Friday in Palm Springs.
The discussion is open to the public and residents are urged to attend. It's scheduled 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Aug. 23 at the Coachella Valley Economic Partnership, 3111 East Tahquitz Canyon Way.
From a Nestande newsletter to 42nd Assembly District constituents:
"In light of the recent fires that have plagued the region, this forum is meant to facilitate meaningful discussion on fire suppression efforts among local partners. The goal is to provide interested parties and constituents with insights on impediments to increasing suppression efforts, and identify best practices and needed resources to provide more protections for our local communities. The roundtable will have speakers from Cal Fire, local fire agencies, fire scientists, environmental groups and others."
