In order to keep discussion going as easily as possible, at the suggestion & request of commenters, we have created a new page to host the ongoing fire discussion.
The previous page has accumulated over 700 comments – from a wide array of viewpoints. Anyone wanting to understand the issues in Wilson County would be well-advised to click here and read through them.
Below are links to the original source documents assembled previously.
Since this has been a critical topic (and most likely will continue to be), RFMJ has decided to collect some of the relevant documents and make them available here.
If you have something you would like to see added, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
