Essential Public Information Hour: with Betsy Cawn
airtimes: Sunday 2 pm L (L: Live P: prerecorded A: Archive R: Repeat)
Starting Sunday, February 27, 2022, the Essential Public Information Hour will provide a monthly update on WATER ISSUES. Of the many crises Lake County experiences (due to the high-risk natural environment and pervasive resource deficits), the impact of long-term drought on the forested uplands surrounding the Clear Lake Basin and extending southward toward Napa County has increased the risks of wind-driven wildfire spread in areas just beginning to recover from 2015's Valley Fire catastrophe, as well as the communities nestled in the foothills of the Mendocino National Forest and Bureau of Land Management territories on the east and west.
Building community-lifeline capacities and public involvement in restoring fire suppression infrastructure, overcoming communication system weaknesses and incomplete processes for safely evacuating disabled populations, networking with neighbors and non-governmental support organizations is the task at hand.
[The Essential Public Information Hour highlights current issues of interest to all Lake County residents and visitors relying on public health and safety services (federal, state, regional, and local governments, special districts, and agencies) related to environmental protection programs and specific to disaster management (emergency responders, secondary and tertiary service providers, and community organizations active in disasters). Originated in November, 2015, following the Valley Fire.]
