Event Details:

California’s wildfire experiences over the past decade and beyond have been center stage for its captive audience of neighboring states who have watched with deepening concern and empathy. This has profoundly impacted their education and approach to their plans and actions. In today’s discussion you will hear from Bill Messner the Director of Wildfire Mitigation & Resiliency for Portland General Electric, Oregon’s largest energy provider serving nearly half of the state’s population and 75 percent of its commercial and industrial activity.  Bill will provide insight into Oregon’s wildfire mitigation journey and Portland General Electric’s ongoing efforts to mitigate wildfire risk.
