Sadly, the state of California is all too familiar with the devastating effects of repeated wildfire seasons.
Loss of life, property and power have become common outcomes over the years. And the question on everyone’s mind is: Will the 2020 fire season hold the same fate?
The ingredients for a potentially active wildfire season are in the mix for many parts of the region this year.
In 2019, there was a statistically significant drop off in the number of acres burned across the United States. Lower drought levels and cooler summers may be some of the factors.
In California, power shutoffs may have prevented the spread of fires caused by electrical lines. Many recall the tragedy in the town of Paradise, which is still recovering from the 2018 Camp Fire.
Entering 2020, conditions may be prime for increased wildfire activity, unfortunately. More drought across the west and parts of California are raising some flags.
According to AccuWeather, a hot and dry summer is in store for much of the west, mirroring conditions from previous years. These conditions increase both the chances for offshore wind events and the number of days of high fire danger.
These are just some of the variables that have the potential to give rise to increased wildfire activity.
When utility companies try to help stop the next big wildfire disaster through power shutoffs, millions of customers across the state will be left in the dark. Outdated energy infrastructure leaves companies with no other choice but to implement planned power outages.
The price for protecting California from the dangers of wildfire is high – but it’s not a cost your business of family should have to absorb any more.
