As wildfires become a year-round threat, planners say Arizona should prepare for the worst
The current wildfire season in Arizona is already in a destructive period.
Experts have been talking about the importance of being prepared, physically and mentally, for nearly year-round wildfires thanks to drought, climate change and ineffective policies.
In a recent piece for Slate, Molly Mowery and two co-authors wrote a piece titled, “Fire is here to stay: Can we live with it?”
Mowery is executive director of the Community Wildfire Planning Center.
The Show spoke with her, and the conversation began by explaining whether a longer fire season is more of a challenge.
