Documentary producer talks 'Living with Wildfire' on next edition of KBTC's Northwest Now

Posted: September 15, 2021

It’s been a dry and warmer-than-normal Summer, not only here in Western Washington, but also throughout the West Coast. On this edition of Northwest Now, we take a closer look at what has become the new normal– destructive wildfires and smoky summer skies. We’ll meet a documentary producer from Central Washington who recently produced “Living With Wildfire” with the help of a scientist from the U.S. Forest Service.  Find out how you can keep your home safe.

Northwest Now is a weekly public affairs program that airs Friday at 7:30 p.m. on KBTC Public Television, a service of Bates Technical College.  You can visit our website to watch past episodes and learn more about our show.
