Episode 01 – The Front Lines










Forester. Wildland Firefighter. Baker. Jana Peterson from the Oregon Department of Forestry kicks off our new #forestproud Podcast series. As our first guest in a 9-week series on wildfire, we jump right into the deep end and talk about what it’s like being on the front lines of a wildfire. We talk about how when it’s not ‘fire season’, Jana is still working with fire through prescribed burns to help keep our forests healthy and our communities safe.

We also talk with Jana about what it’s like being a female in a male dominated profession and the challenges – and opportunities – that it presents.
