Leading off the news today, a submission from San Diego Regional Fire Safety Forum Director Bill Hoffman about a long-awaited addition to San Diego's aerial firefighting force, followed by a UT article on the same topic, and one from Ramona on wildfire preparedness. While the next article shows that Kentucky is just heading into their fire season, Colorado and Wyoming are seeing the end of theirs, as demonstrated by a pair of articles. A couple of wildfires in Utah appear not to notice the approach of fall, as shown by the next two articles. Pennsylvania is getting ready for future fires by doing mechanical thinning, while a wildfire in northern California torched several homes. Two press releases out today: one from the Army about their recent wildfire-fighting activities, and one from Neptune Aviation about the tragic P-2 crash earlier this week. Overseas, Spain's unusually quiet fire season received a rude wakeup call and Lebanon is pondering how to cope with wildfires in their region.
