In its August issue, just out on newsstands, Men’s Journal magazine highlights America’s wildfire problem and what the country is trying to do to tackle this growing crisis.
Author David H. Freedman, in his article titled, “America is Burning,” examines the many different aspects of the fire problem including climate change, the impact of drought and increased development in the wildland/urban interface. With information, opinions and statistics gleamed from the impressive list of industry professionals he interviewed, Mr. Freedman looks at all sides of the equation, from suppression, wildfire preparedness, codes and regulations, fire adapted communities and more. Our own Michele Steinberg was interviewed as well for the article, providing NFPA’s point of view on the goal and mission of the Firewise Communities Program.
