One thought on “Another firefighter killed in Chile wildfires”

  1. The decision to stay or go as a wildfire approaches is truly a life or death decision, and not just for the property owner, but also for the firefighter who answers the call of duty to protect and serve. Here in the US I think we are increasingly getting the word out about this, but I wonder how other countries are handling this kind of information dissemination.
