Ember Defense Featured as Weekly Guest on Sonoma County’s KSRO Radio Segment, Ask the Expert

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Aug. 23, 2021): Ember Defense, leader in wildfire home and business hardening services, is now featured weekly on KSRO, Sonoma County’s FM News Talk Channel. The segment, hosted by Michelle Marques, is titled Ask The Expert: Fire Ready North Bay with Ember Defense and airs on KSRO 103.5 FM, 94.5 FM, 1350 AM, and streaming online every Friday at 12:30-1 PM. 

The radio segment aims to prepare KSRO listeners in Sonoma County and beyond for fire season. By providing valuable information about wildfire home and structure hardening, the hope is that there will be less wildfire destruction and people will feel more prepared. 

Ember Defense is using the air time to educate home and business owners on products that help structures protect themselves. By featuring their vendors each week, they will provide information and answer questions about wildfire home-hardening products.

Each week, Ember Defense will feature one of its vendors including waveGUARD, Vulcan Vents, FireGuard Fire Prevention Services, and more. Other guests who will contribute to the conversation include representatives from CAL Fire, government officials like Senator Mike McGuire and Santa Rosa Mayor Tom Schwehelm, and more. 

“We here at Ember Defense are trying to educate the public on how to be proactive rather than reactive, to get their houses and properties ready for wildfire,” says Adam Iveson, co-founder of Ember Defense. “The research is there that the chances of a structure’s survival significantly increases with hardening and people are realizing that wildfires aren’t going anywhere; they’re only getting worse with climate change. That’s why it is invaluable to have the Ask The Expert platform to talk about what we’re seeing and what we do.”

“We created Fire Ready North Bay to bring a weekly show about local fire safety. What can renters do, home and land owners, business owners… we wanted it all covered,” says Cathy Slack, KSRO Sales Manager. “We found the perfect sponsor in Ember Defense. Their heart is in saving lives and property, and they have the resources as well as a variety of specialists that will bring life-saving information to the community. We couldn’t be more proud!”
