COVID-19 and wildfires main concern for Californians
Every year, California is engaged in an epic “Man versus Nature” battle against thousands of wildfires that rage across the land, claiming lives and inflicting billions of dollars in damage.

More than 2,000 wildfires in California over the last five years have burned 100 million acres, displaced hundreds of thousands of residents, and taken the lives of more than 150 people.
