Balancing Air Quality And Prescribed Burns


As firefighters continue to contain and mop up of the King Fire in El Dorado and Placer counties, we’ll talk with federal air quality officials about how wildfires are affecting the air we breathe. We’ll also talk about how prescribed burning can be an effective tool to mitigate and prevent larger wildfires, and the public relations difficulties that go into planning and executing a prescribed fire.
