California Burning: A multimedia project

Amy Quinton, Capital Public Radio (NPR)

This multimedia resource provides an overview of wildfire risk and response to the risk in California. Text, video, images, and data are used to discuss how drought and overgrowth of forests play a role in megafires and provide a glimpse into fire policy and fire supression efforts from the past, to current, and looking to the future. The resource also touches on technology and other preparations that are being used to reduce the risk for megafire occurrence and to minimize, to the extent possible, damage from megafires.
