Peninsula Fire hosts wildfire informational film

The Peninsula Fire Protection District is hosting an informational event regarding wildfires and their aftermath.

With the Camp Fire still in our recent memories, many rural communities have a renewed sense of emergency about addressing the potential dangers of fire in our area.

PFPD is hosting a free film screening of “Wilder than Wild” at 6 p.m., Thursday, June 27.

Filmmakers said, “Wilder Than Wild: Fire, Forests and the Future” is a one-hour documentary that reveals “how fuel build-up and climate change have exposed Western wild lands to large, high intensity wildfires, while at the same time the greenhouse gases released from these fires contribute to global warming. This vicious cycle jeopardizes our forests and affects us all with extreme weather and more wildfires, some of which are now entering highly populated wildland-urban areas.”

If interested in learning more about the dangers that abound in northern California and want to become part of the solution, come on out to the Peninsula Fire Station #2, 801 Golf Club Road, and watch this screening.

There will be a panel discussion following the film and refreshments will be served.
