Really, focusing time and money to see, measure, and listen to wildfires? How about THE focus on creating firewise and resilient forests, rangelands, and communities to withstand fire? Where is a focus on ecological restoration?

Our detection systems are good, our suppression forces and practices sufficient (except perhaps aircraft), but our pre-fire mitigation efforts seriously lagging. It's only that one - mitigation (fuels treatments. ecosystem restoration) that will provide any big, long term, and meaningful impact.
