Fire Dept. to screen documentary Wilder Than Wild: Fire, Forest, and the Future

The Piedmont Fire Department will host a screening of the award-winning documentary Wilder than Wild: Fire, Forests, and the Future on KCOM and Zoom on Monday, August 31 at 6:00 p.m. followed by a panel discussion on wildfire preparation and disaster preparedness.

Wilder than Wild is a one-hour documentary that reveals how fire suppression and climate change have exposed western landscapes to large, high intensity wildfires. The film goes on to explore strategies that are being developed to help mitigate the impact of these fires.

The City of Piedmont wants to build community awareness about mitigation strategies in this new age of wildfire. The screening is part of a larger effort by the City to engage the community in conversations about the future of wildfire, specifically in an urban setting. A panel featuring
Kevin White, the film’s director/producer, and Fire Chief Bret Black will follow the screening.

Residents can view the screening by tuning to KCOM TV, Comcast channel 27 or AT&T channel 99. Residents can watch on the Zoom platform by clicking the following link:
