Two of the most destructive wildfires in San Diego County history ravaged San Diego County communities in late October. Wildfires in 2003 and 2007 helped fuel an ongoing push to develop better and more sophisticated firefighting tools. KPBS Business and Environment Reporter Erik Anderson says technology is being applied in innovative ways, but it has yet to squeeze out one fire detection method that has served firefighters for decades.

How to? Volunteer at USFS....I just got on one of the last manned towers in WA. 2019 shaping up to be a nasty fire year. I'm a lifetime woodsman and live in these mountains so that helped. Lots of wilderness experience and used to solitude. Fire watch is NOT for everybody.
