When a forest fire comes to Jamestown the ember-storm will ignite many
buildings and those building infernos will ignite the landscape, trees, bushes,
and soil; we will lose homes and our fair landscape. If we do what we can to
mitigate our homes, both our homes and our landscape can survive the
ember-storm. The firefighters will then be able to fend off the crown fire.”
