Wildland Urban Interface Firefighter Training 2019

Each year Cal FIRE conducts a couple of wildland urban interface (WUI) firefighting training exercises for local and regional firefighters as weall as residents. One of this year's drill will occur April 7th in LOP and Darkhourse. It's a tremendous way for new and experienced firefighters to get some familiarization with our neighborhoods and with the suppression techniques needed to fight wildfires in our area. Be aware that traffic could be impacted in and around Combie and Magnolia roads inside and outside LOP.

What steps can we take to avoid further destruction? Forest ecologist Paul Hessburg confronts some tough truths about wildfires and details how we can help restore the natural balance of the landscape.

Take a look at this TED talk on Why Wildfires have goton worse and how we can stop them.
