PORTLAND, Ore., June 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wildfires have already scorched thousands of acres, and "fire season" is still ahead. But after the smoke clears and evacuation orders are lifted, how do we protect people, property, and infrastructure from post-fire erosion, debris flows, and flooding hazards before the winter rains arrive?

StormCon is the world's largest surface water-quality event, drawing attendees from around the world every year to find cost-effective solutions to water pollution problems.

StormCon announces the addition of "Fire & Rain: Rapid Assessment and Emergency Mitigation Measures Following Wildfires". This full-day course is a rare opportunity to learn firsthand from those who have played key roles in emergency post-fire efforts throughout the country. If your community is potentially impacted by wildfires, don't wait until it's too late-make plans now to attend this very special course. Additional information is available at http://stormcon.com/preconference.html#fire

Participants will be key personnel from cities and counties throughout North America, and other participating organizations including Geosyntec Consultants, the Bureau of Land Management, US Forest Service, Oregon Dept of Forestry, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Washington Dept. of Natural Resources and the National Park Service, and many others. 

In addition to Fire & Rain, the StormCon program includes more than 160 educational sessions presented by the nation's leading stormwater experts and covers a range of material focusing on Green Infrastructure, Urban Retrofit, BMP case studies, Stormwater program management, NPDES, water-quality monitoring, Industrial Stormwater Management, Erosion & Sediment Control, and advanced research topics. Nearly 200 vendors and service providers will exhibit stormwater-related products and equipment, the world's largest tradeshow of its kind.

StormCon offers the unparalleled opportunity to learn from the very best in the field. With the increasingly urgent demand to protect our watersheds, the pollution prevention strategies and technologies being discussed and on display at StormCon should not be missed. Classes are filling up quickly, so don't wait-register today! Course descriptions and registration information can be found at www.stormcon.com
