Stopping Fires (3)

Fire. Stopping fires is an important work. Thank You to All Hard-working, Fire-fighting Heroes (many of whom are Mental Health Heroes depending on the fire)!

Please read Stopping Fires (1) & (2) to follow along with my train of thought with this current post.

Have You survived a fire? Whew. Glad for you!

It seems like certain weather conditions & political climate sparks out of control literal and metaphorical wildfires. Family feuding and actual fire cause damage. All of us would agree fire prevention can be a priority. Like any important thing–it takes time, work, effort, education, and much planning and much follow-through. It’s worth it!

As a father of three teens & 1 young adult, it is my responsibility to protect my family from fire. A warm controlled camp fire for roasting marshmallows is not the same as a raging forest fire

Certain times of the year seem more stressful than at other times for some of us. Maybe at those particular times, we need to be more alert for fire. The wildfires in California have been in the news and affecting many of us. Some safety tips from the California Department of Forestry & Fire Protection.


All of us are responsible to protect ourselves and our families from either a literal or metaphorical fire!
