Stop Expecting Firefighters to Protect Your Homes

Such is the title of a CNN.com article...nice to see some of this reality-talk hitting the mainstream national media.  We often talk about engaging the public at large....larger media outlets can carry this water for us and reach many more people.  

In the op-ed by Kyle Dickman, two key items are highlighted: 1) The government spends over a billion dollars annually fighting fires but firefighters can't perform miracles, and 2) homeowners need to do their part by making their homes and properties fire resistant. 

(Notice he doesn't mention fire-proof....no such thing...)
