June First Thurs.mp3109.02 MB

Cook County has had its share of wildfires and some have been devastating to the forest and private property. Even though we’ve started with a late and damp spring, the summer weather can quickly change. Warm, dry, windy. Lightning strikes or being careless with campfires. Summer always has the potential of turning into “fire season.”
