Jackson County Goes All-In On Wildfire Suppression
Most of this summer has been relatively mild, but memories of large fires and widespread smoke are still fresh from the last two years.
Jackson County commissioners put some money and political muscle into a campaignto convince the federal government to fully supress all wildfires. The feds own more than half of all the land in the county.
The campaign includes video components and a petition to Congress. Rick Dyer, one of the three commissioners, visits with details and rationale.
