What You Need to Know as We Head into Wildfire Season

IMG_5720.jpg

On This Green Earth:

As we head into wildfire season, Chris and Nell discuss what we are facing. As of last week, all but eight of the 227 wildfires that have occurred so far this year have been human caused.  

Last year, Utah set a record for human-caused wildfires with 1,143. 

Coming on the show to discuss this with them is Kaitlynn Webb, the Statewide Prevention and Fire Communications Coordinator.

Webb will talk about these numbers, their trends, and the good possibility that we will set another record this year.
