Wildfires in Los Angeles as drought lingers
July 9, 2009
Nebraska residents have something in common with Los Angelinos: Living with long-term drought. Nebraska's "seven-year drought", which caused Lake McConaughy
to drop to painfully low levels
, looks almost easy to survive by comparison with the drought in Los Angeles, where the mayor's drought-related rules regulate even the pouring of water in restaurants
. The California drought has led to wildfires in and around LA
that occupy the efforts of hundreds of firefighters and cause evacuations as well as other nuisances.
The time to prepare for wildfires, of course, is before they become imminent; our portable fire pumps
and home fire-protection packages can be enormously useful when used by well-prepared individuals, and our PTO-driven fire pumps
are widely used by fire departments all over the country.
