On The First Day of Christmas …..

The (Wild)Fire Season gave all to thee…..

1  Serious Fire Blogger.

2017 was expected to be a hot and active Fire Season in the northwest but we could never have imagined its intensity or destruction that it would have upon the Washington, Oregon and Idaho landscapes.  This year, I had a plan and a template to keep track of all wildfires.  However, after 30-plus incidents happening at the same time –  it became apparent it was next to impossible to track them all.  It was worth the time and effort to bring this Blog as a hobby back in January 2012 when it was first created into a work-in-progress business adventure that has created many opportunities along our many journeys.

This year has been filled with many amazing opportunities to get to know you personally and professionally.  The best part in all of this, was using my strengths in extensive research, sharing current wildfire news and engaging with each and every one of you, as well as the Public.  Thank you for helping us become so successful!

We also could not forget all those who work so hard in this dangerous but rewarding profession for your time, service, commitment, dedication and making a difference upon the lives you impact every day.  Your passion for the fire and EMS service clearly is defined and very transparent in your lives.  We applaud you for what you do out there.

We also dedicate this post to the men/women who have lost their Lives this year.  We Will Never Forget them, their Legacy or their compassion for others.  It is who they are and what they live for.  Rest in Peace.
