Posted by Jacqueline L.
"In 2017, a total of 66,131 wildfires had a devastating impact, burning 9.8 million acres of land. Compared with 2016, the 2017 fire season represents an additional 556 fires and 4.4 million acres of destruction, an 81% increase over 2016.1 Gone are the limited fire seasons that firefighters can adequately prepare and staff for, and in its place are unprecedented seasons stretching year-round in some cases and taxing resources above and beyond what most departments can anticipate."
