Voters views on wildfire

Blog Post created by Michael Hazell Employee on Sep 27, 2013

Just under half (44%) of U.S. voters say “uncontrollable wildfires that destroy property and forests "is a serious problem, facing the nation” – with one-in-four calling it an “extremely” or “very” serious problem, according to a recent poll comissioned by the National Forest Foundation. Concerns about this issue are drastically different by region, with 42% of voters in the West saying wildfires are an extremely or very serious problem and two-thirds deeming them to be at least somewhat serious.

The report also acknowledges that this is the highest proportion to register this view since 2007.
