This week, the Austin American-Statesman is running a series of stories on the wildfires from this past summer. Today's stories are on preparations area fire departments, including AFD, are making, as well as possible changes to the fire code. You can check out both stories by clicking on the links below. Also, pictures from both stories are shown below as well (photo credit: Jay Janner, Austin American-Statesman).
Special thanks to Lt. Josh Portie, Lt. Randy Denzer, PFFs Ryan Washington and Jason Rodriguez, and Chief Engineer Carl Wren for their participation in helping make these stories so powerful.
