Welcome to Wildfire Basics for Professionals: Educator series. This educator series consists of 5 training modules that are geared towards teachers interested in incorporating wildfire awareness and information into curriculum. Incorporating some of these techniques and ideas into curriculum can help students become more aware of wildfire danger, and how to mitigate wildfire risks.
This module will go into the basics of preventing ignitions. This is the foundation of preventing wildfires from starting in the first place.
This module introduces the different steps you can take to preparing your home, yard, and family for wildfires. With the increasingly common occurrence of wildfire in Hawaii, is it important for families to prepare the places that they have control over before a wildfire starts.
This module discusses community-level wildfire preparedness. There is a lot we have the ability to do with our communities before a wildfire occurs, and preparing as a community is the best way to ensure that a wildfire is less likely to spread throughout a neighborhood.
This module gives an overview of the KNOW Fire curriculum structure that will be presented in greater detail during module 5. It displays the meaning behind WHY it is important to teach wildfire concepts in a particular order, and which concepts are best to apply to different ability levels.
This module goes over each of the curriculum activities that we recommend teaching to students. The activities are meant to be fun, challenging, and educational methods to help students learn that they can be a part of mitigating wildfires in their community. This module displays some effective methods that can be used to teach students about the many dimensions of wildfire mitigation.
