All About Wildfires on AU Wednesday

This is shaping up to be a very busy fire season in the West, with several fires already burning in Utah.

We’ll talk about wildfires on Wednesday’s Access Utah: surviving them, fighting them, preventing them, along with fire policy.

Among Tom Williams’ guests:

  • Larry Johnson, a Wayne County man who was evacuated from his home because of a fire
  • BLM Utah Fire Management Officer, Sheldon Wimmer, who can talk from firsthand experience about fighting wildfires
  • USU Professor Mike Kuhns, who has studied fire in Utah’s wildland/urban interface
  • ASU Professor Stephen Pyne, author of Fire in America: A Cultural History of Wildland and Rural Fire, among other books.
