"The Highlands" Presents:
Valley Fire Panel 4/16/16
Trial by Fire - September 12, 2016
During the years, 2012-2015 Lake County was ravaged one sector at a time by fire but always skating through with minimal housing damages until last summer (205) the pot boiled over, so to speak, when it seemed we were under attack when 3 major fires occurred one right after another.

KPFZ's well-earned reputation for engaging conversations with the community on current local topics was brightly buffed and polished during the Valley Fire when many of the programmers volunteered to step up and broadcasted live 24/7 the current information of evacuations, road closures, & clothing/furniture distribution centers. Their dedication to helping in the crisis was a gift for those displaced by the fire who clung to their voices as a lifeline during the time of crisis along with the thousands of listeners on the internet who also tuned in. It was an epiphany for many who disapprove of community radio when it became obvious that the selfless volunteer act of of being a beacon to the evacuees earned KPFZ mighty praise all across America as it proved the need for strengthening community wide communication.
