From the Conclusions ... 'In conclusion, let me repeat that delivering fire information at the proper time and tailoring it to meet the needs of those affected is critical. Keep in mind that you are dealing with real people who have the same loves, fears, and suspicions that you have. Treat everyone with respect, patience, and above all compassion. The flames eventually go away; the people don't.'
