Who is responsible for Wild Land Fire Suppression? It depends on who the land belongs to. Some counties have a large portion of federal lands within there county.

We’ve been discussing emergency management here with our guests from Salt Lake, Tooele County and the State. If you can’t count on government and it’s no fault of government in a major disaster, what is the mindset you have to have to survive a disaster? It is important to take ownership of what is happening in order to survive.
The County Seat program has been delivering the good news and issues that affect county government in the state of Utah. To our knowledge there has never been a television program that brings local government issues to the constituents.
The interviews in this video are of a few of the county commissioners and the executive director of the School and Institutional Lands Administration, who have participated in this monumental project. They talk about how the program has worked for them.
Utah Governor Gary Herbert also took a couple of minutes of his time to talk about the importance of The County Seat as a tool for the counties.
The discussion continues online to talk about some of the other details of planning and zoning.
