Episode 16

This week on Weather Geeks we go to the front lines of the firefight. The 2018 deadly and devastating wildfires could get even worse as brave men and women put their lives on the line. We explore the day to day conditions that help and hurt the effort and explore the factors that makes their job so dangerous. Weather Channel Correspondent Dave Malkoff, tells some of their stories and explains what it’s like to battle these monster fires. Joining the conversation is Jess Gardetto from the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, Idaho. We look at the factors making this season so bad and what it will take to get some of these fires out before the rainy season – which is still months away.
