Just as people need to be cognizant if they live in areas where wildfires can happen, people also need to be cognizant if they live in areas with flood potential. FEMA won’t be coming to your aid come SHTF.
The potential for a field fire is one of the reasons I mow and weed whack around a one room schoolhouse built in 1808 that is across the road from me. It is owned by a defunct group whose members are mostly deceased and is essentially an abandoned building, so I do my part until the day comes the local historic society can figure out how to take ownership. My fear is if the grass were allowed to grow into a field that some idiot tossing a cigarette out their window could ignite a fire that would quickly consume the building.
