It always upsets me to see fires burning down our precious nature reserves, and I wonder why more isn't done to stop them?! Signed.

I believe that the firefighters are out there risking their lives trying to save other lives plus homes etc. they deserve to be well paid and appreciated and respected with out them where would we be?

It is so very important, Tina, - who knows with more prevention, the raging wild fires in California, might have been lessened. I so hope the petition arrived timely to President Obama.
Shame this petition closed , with only 3, 512 signers, 10,000 was needed.
Hope it was still presented at the recent climate change conference .
Thanks everyone who signed, Remember you didn't sit grumbling in your chair at home, you signed and caused more awareness, for the plight of the firefighters , fighting to control "Wild Fires" xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx pray the fire fighters don't get injured or .......................
