With the Fourth of July behind us, we now look to the dog days of summer and fire season across much of the West. But, with historic levels of snowpack, what does our overall fire risk look like? And what can we do to help protect ourselves?

This week, the Sierra Nevada Ally’s Richard Bednarski takes over the show, and chats with a local property owner about how he has built green, defensible space around his property for more than 40 years. Then, he calls up the National Interagency Fire Center, or NIFC, in Boise to learn more about how wildfire response happens and how the center works.

Listen to new episodes every Friday at noon on KNVC, 95.1FM, Carson City Community Radio, and wherever you listen to podcasts. And the Sierra Nevada Ally is now available as a podcast! You can listen to the latest audio news reports from our team on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Amazon Music, or by searching “Sierra Nevada Ally” wherever you listen.
