Firefighters are killed every year by wildfires. These scientists want to change that.

This fascinating research could help save firefighters when they get overrun by wildfires. 

Kenneth Weene's insight:
As we enter the high wildfire season, let's take a second to think about the firefighters who put themselves at risk to save communities surrounded by forests. If you own a cabin in the woods, be sure not to keep irreplaceable things there since those brave men and women can't be tied up carrying out your belongings. And, remember it's your responsibility to cut back the brush from around your property. Obviously and most importantly, it is the responsibility of everyone, resident, camper, visitor, who is in the forests to avoid starting fires. While nature does start many—particularly by lightening strikes—and fires are healthy for some forests, that doesn't make human stupidity a good thing. The animals that make the forests their homes and the tourists who will come after you appreciate your care. 

Meanwhile, I hope everyone has a great and safe summer in the woods.
