Oh great! This looks like "wildfire theater" to me.

Why do our government employees always want to talk about what we citizens should do when a wildfire is already on its way?

How about talking about what our government is going to do to prevent it from happening in the first place? When is the brush clearance of Highway 84 going to happen? When is Mid-peninsula Open Space going to clear out their rats nest called Thornewood? What is the government doing to enforce the law on our neighbors who are oblivious to the problem and illegally operating kindling farms on their property? The problems are obvious and right front of everyone's faces.

I'm tired of government telling me how I can help. I help by paying for it. Defensible space instructions and CERPP activities are all over the web and anyone's who's going to do that already knows and has done it. We don't need to hear it again.

I want to know what government is going to do to PREVENT wildfire.
