From the text ... 'As we move forward and as we put more prescribed fire across the nation, there are going to be things like smoke incidents, there will be accidents, there will be loss of structures. And, yes, there will even be loss of life. The future of prescribed fire depends on how well we've done with public education and how we handle ourselves when one of these accidents or incidents occur. The future depends on us and many like us. These are the believers in this room, and I know the times are tight, but there are a whole lot of people on the fringe out there that need to be in this room.' © 2010, Tall Timbers Research, Inc.
