Wildfire preparation and recovery will be the topic of an Aug. 6 Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Rangeland, Wildlife and Fisheries Management Unit range webinar.

The “Wildfire Preparation, Effects and Recovery” webinar is part of the Texas Range Webinar Series, scheduled the first Thursday of each month from noon to 1 p.m., said Megan Clayton, AgriLife Extension range specialist and webinar coordinator, Corpus Christi.

Tim Steffens, Ph.D., range specialist with AgriLife Extension and West Texas A&M University in Canyon, will be the speaker.

“Much of the state is still suffering under dry conditions with occasional high winds that are perfect for carrying a wildfire,” Steffens said. “Dry lightning can be a trigger, as can human caused fire.  It is certainly something to respect and be prepared for.”

Information presented will include factors affecting fire behavior, safeguarding homesteads and headquarters for fire season, preparations and responses to wildfire, safety and rangeland recovery considerations following wildfire.

There will be no Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education offered, Clayton said, so it is a free webinar for all.
