April 8, 2019 – The You Bet Firewise Community is hosting a screening of the award-winning documentary Wilder than Wild: Fire, Forests, and the Future at the Peardale Chicago Park Fire Station #257 on Tuesday April 9.

Wilder than Wild is a one-hour documentary that reveals how fire suppression and climate change have exposed Western landscapes to large, high intensity wildfires. The film goes on to explore strategies that are being developed to help mitigate the impact of these fires.

The screening at our local fire station is part of a larger effort to engage our community in conversations about the future of wildfire.

The You Bet Fire Safety team recognizes the importance of building community awareness about mitigation strategies in this new age of wildfire. We are actively working on clearing our roads for evacuation safety as well as setting up temporary refuge areas to be used in the event of a wildfire. Join us to learn more!
