From the text ... 'It's a continual process to educate the legislature, and we need to continually educate the public. Florida has almost 18 million people and every day we get -- or we used to get -- about 900 new people per day moving in from the North. That's slowed way down, but we want your Floridians to grow up with the prescribed fire. And we need to emphasize and talk about the benefits from the safety aspect, the land management, and the qualifications of our prescribed fire practitioners.' © 2010, Tall Timbers Research, Inc.
