Smokey the Bear has always said, “only you can prevent wildfires.” We spoke with an SRP policy expert about why that’s not entirely true.
Wildfires have been in the news a lot lately. The Woodbury Fire, for example, is the fifth-largest fire in Arizona’s history. It burned 123,875 acres between June 8 and July 16, 2019. Luckily, no one was hurt in the Woodbury Fire and no buildings burned before the fire was contained. However, there is still damage to consider.
