Plans need to be made to protect property from potential wildfires.  With forest and timberlands damaged as they are, it is primed for wildfires.  Plans need to be made to clean up these areas of the large amounts of dead and dying trees. Fire protection methods need to be established now. Additionally, in just a short order of time these areas will be infested with bugs/beetles that will cause future problems for the citizens of Bay County and the surrounding areas.
