    The key to effective fire fighting of a wildfire is preparation. Spending money NOW to put out fires is expensive. Spending time and money to prepare before the fires to make fire breaks and protection zones keeps the fires manageable and saves property and lives.

    It a lot like spending health dollars on vaccinations and preventative health measure, rather that fighting epidemics.

    Preparation. It really IS important.

    Help! The GOP is NUTS (& the Dems need some!)
