Storyboard Text

  • Forests provide wood, food, oxygen, habitats for animals and livelihood for humans. They also fight erosion! 
  • Forest fires can start by one of two ways: naturally or human caused. Natural fires are usually caused by lightning while human fires can be caused by numerous reasons such as not properly extinguishing a campfire.
  • Global climate change is increasing the frequency of forest fires in North America.  
  • A study published in Proceedings of the Nation Academy of Science suggests that climate change has played a significant role in making forests in the western U.S. drier and more likely to burn. 
  • "...increases in temperature and vapor pressure deficit significantly enhanced fuel aridity across western U.S. forests over the past several decades and, during 2000-2015, contributed to 75% more forested area experiencing high fire=season fuel aridity and an average of nine additional days per year of high fire potential."
  • Forests fires are not only dangerous but, can be very expensive to put out. The following are ways that humans can help prevent wildfires from starting: never leave a fire unintended, shoot off fireworks only in permitted areas and always have water and a shovel nearby when starting fires to put them out quickly if they get out of hand.
