    Episode Description: 

    “911 showed up six days later”, says Gary Jones, a Woolsey Fire survivor. During a fire, you are on your own for days. So one of the biggest decisions we can make during a fire is to heed warnings immediately. On November 8, 2018, a bush fire was reported in Ventura County, California. The powerful Santa Ana winds caused this fire to accelerate and spread out. Gary ignored prior calls for evacuation, and this was one of the most regretful decisions he has made. He lost his property, three of his dogs, and nearly lost his life. In this episode, Gary relates the events of that terrifying day three years ago, and practical lessons he learned on heeding warnings as promptly as possible. Tune in as Jennifer and Gary engage you in a heart-wrenching conversation about being a fire survivor.
