News Flash: the entire country lost control of forest management around a century ago when it was decided that ALL forest fires had to be stamped out. In hindsight (which is indeed always better than foresight), this was the wrong approach, and we are now paying for it in the form of much more frequent and very much more devastating wildfires, which are burning up all that excess fuel we've been foolishly storing in the woods for the last century or so.

Not to worry, though, Ma Nature is on the job, and via the mechanism of Global Climate Change, is removing that excess fuel in Her own way.



Yep.

And don't forget that many forest fires are started by humans. If we people were more careful, we could reduce the number of fires by at least 50 percent.

Nearly 85 percent* of wildland fires in the United States are caused by humans. Human-caused fires result from campfires left unattended, the burning of debris, equipment use and malfunctions, negligently discarded cigarettes, and intentional acts of arson.

If your home has been built in the last 10 years in the U.S., chances are they are wired together to intercommunicate. This sort of wiring guarantees that if one alarm in the house goes off, they all go off.
My view is the interconnection guarantees you will lose valuable time figuring out where the fire is. I've got 7 of them, and any one of them is easily heard throughout the house.
