And really the biggest issue (and this is true for hurricanes, floods, etc.) is building where we shouldn't. FAR too much construction happens in areas prone to wildfire, and then people get upset when they are told they can't build there - so they sue, win the right to build, get taxpayer funded insurance, their house burns, and you and I pay them to build back. Seems like a cycle we should break :)
