Here is an interesting question posed by another blogger - http://wildfiretoday.blogspot.com/2008/11/wildfire-news-november-12.html - Should the federal government be giving millions of dollars to private homeowners and businesses for fire equipment around their homes and businesses? What's next? Will FEMA pay to replace wood shake shingles with fire resistant roofing materials on privately owned structures? Will FEMA buy you a boat if you live in a flood-prone area? It is interesting that there are all different ways to look at this, aren't there?
