Fire & Media Relations

A fire information officer gives an interview.

Interested in covering a wildfire, creating a feature piece on a prescribed burn, or want to talk with a firefighter? Then you’ve come to the right place.

The Fire Information Office facilitates access for journalists, broadcast media, and the press on the coverage of the parks’ wildland fire, prescribed burn, structure fire, and aviation programs.

This includes taped and live on-camera, in-person, radio, telephone, and even video chat-based interviews with firefighters, fire staff, and other support personnel.

Please contact Mike Theune, Fire Information Officer, via e-mail or by phone at 559-565-3703 to start the process.

Note: Due to the inherent dangers associated with coverage of fire and aviation activities, all media engaged in frontline coverage are required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE). We can provide materials with reasonable notice.
