When a sequence of the largest wildfires in Georgia history consumed nearly 500,000 acres of forest, farmland and swamp, firefighters from forty-four states responded and finally extinguished the inferno. I became the Georgia Forestry Commission's spokesperson for this documentary video of the exceptionally-well coordinated firefighting expertise which was produced by Pope-Johnson Video Productions.

When a catastrophe of this magnitude strikes, response time is crucial, not just in addressing the situation, but also in documenting it. When I got the call to become the Forestry Commission's spokesperson, I'd just had minor oral surgery. Hence the occasional sibilance problem. Hey, you do what you must to get the job done.
