Update on August 24, 2012
Thanks to all of you who've helped us sound the alarm - more federal funding is critical for air tankers to fight wildfires during this hot and dry year! Never was there a more of a need for a strong aerial firefighting force; the National Interagency Fire Center reports (http://www.nifc.gov/fireInfo/nfn.htm)
that 2012 recently broke the record for most acreage devastated by wildfires. To date, nearly 7 million acres—or 10,893 square miles—have burned, forcing many families to evacuate.
Yet, it's not too late to save thousands of American homes and countless acres of pristine forested land; keep inviting your friends (http://www.causes.com/causes/621655-health-and-wellness/actions/1657801?open_inviter=trueutm_source=HealthSodaBanWeekly&utm_medium=UpdateEmail&utm_campaign=Health&utm_nooverride=1) to sign the petition urging President Obama to use his executive power to divert further resources to our nation's aerial firefighting force!
