Host Utilities


With lives at stake, the consequences of incomplete wildfire planning and management impact so much more than just the existence of the utility. This forum will help participants advance the maturity of their wildfire programs and initiatives through:

  • Inviting peer-to-peer dialogue
  • Providing engagement opportunities with a wide range of stakeholders
  • Showcasing of holistic planning and strategies with proven success

We're going  Virtual

We asked and you responded with an overwhelming preference for a virtual event. Large group events are just not a viable option for TDW this year, so for the safety and comfort of our community, T&D World: Wildfire & Risk Mitigation will be coming to you online.

Registration for this event is complimentary to our community members - check out the Agenda and sign-up today!
