Recent Rain Good But Won't Stop Fire Danger
Recent Rain Good But Won't Stop Fire Danger Posted: Jul 15, 2013 1:46 PM PDT Updated: Jul 15, 2013 1:46 PM PDT LAWTON Okla_ It might be the second day of rain, but you can bet no one is saying "rain, rain, go away". It's just the opposite. Rain in the middle of July in Texoma is reason to celebrate. The clouds, rain, and cooler temperatures are pulling people out of their air conditioned places of refuge and putting them outside. They're walking around and even jogging in the middle of the day, which is something you just shouldn't do in Oklahoma's July heat. Lawton firefighters are also enjoying the change in weather. It means a break from wildfires, but they said it won't be that way forever. "There's already been such a growth of the vegetation," Lawton Fire Department's Captain Mark Stottman said. "The last two weeks of these 100 degree temperatures have really dried that stuff out. That stuff's dead, and this rain will not bring it back to life. It's just a matter of when the temperatures come back at the end of this week. We'll be back where we were." Stottman said wildfires are a reality during the summer months in southwest Oklahoma. It would take an unusually wet season to combat them. Stayed tuned for 7News at 6, when Reporter Sara Whaley finds out what our chances are of having more wildfires this summer.


Brothers and Sisters, Please read the attached AP news article taken from today's Shawnee News-Star. If  merely meeting and saying take it or leave it and making threats is not your definition of  "working with various union groups all session long on the proposal, including the groups representing the  firefighters"  please act now. We must contact our Legislators now. When they arrive at the Capitol Monday morning their voice mail and e-mail boxes must be filled with messages of OPPOSITION to back door deal. To say they have worked with us is a lie and your State Senator and State Representative needs to know it. Please act now. Thank you.
