CALFIRE TV on Discovery Channel

Post by Brian »

CALFIRE TV Series premieres tonight on Discovery Channel at 7:22 p.m

The 2020 wildfire season in California has been the worst in state history. More than 4.1 million acres have burned, 9,400 homes and structures have been destroyed, and 33 lives have been lost. Discovery is taking viewers to front lines with CAL FIRE — premiering Sunday, Jan. 3 at 10p ET.

The front lines of California's most destructive wildfire season is truly a sight to behold. The new limited series, CAL FIRE on Discovery follows the blazing path of destruction and heroic first responders of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire). Viewers will see, firsthand, the sacrifices that these heroes make and the destructive reality that they face. Through it all, these selfless Americans fight to protect the people of California and the state’s land from unrelenting deadly infernos.

The 2020 wildfire season in California has been the worst in state history. More than 4.1 million acres have burned, 9,400 homes and structures have been destroyed, and 33 lives have been lost. We’re following the journey and valiant efforts of California's heroic firefighters, many of whom are unable to go home for weeks at a time.

The camera crews spent months implanted with CAL FIRE’s front-line firefighters. Traveling from Shasta in the north, to San Diego in the south, it was an assignment like no other. The camera crews wore cutting-edge fire-resistant helmet cameras to bring viewers into the field. These media professionals had to undergo "Red Flag" training and wear special protective gear to accompany the firefighters on the dangerous front lines.

Firefighters from across the state of California pushed themselves and their resources to the limit to control the fires that consumed millions of acres this season. Now, viewers have the opportunity to watch the battles that took place at some of the fires that made national headlines. Take an inside look at the Apple Fire near the Cherry Valley neighborhood in Southern California, the Creek Fire in the Sierra National Forest, and the El Dorado Fire near San Bernardino County. With the unpredictable Santa Ana wind season fully underway, the danger continues for the firefighters of CAL FIRE. It’s going to be a wild ride.

In addition to watching the premiere of CAL FIRE on January 3 at 10p on Discovery, viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #CalFire and following @Discovery on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. ... f-cal-fire
