As the dry season continues to grow longer, Dark Horse Comics is prepping readers in the Northwest on how to prevent and prepare for wildfires with the upcoming release of Without Warning! Wildfire from Paul Tobin and David Hahn.
“The Without Warning! comic book series began because we found that many public education publications struggled to resonate with younger audiences,” said Althea Rizzo, OEM Geologic Hazards Program Coordinator in a press release from Dark Horse Comics. “The series has been a huge hit, helping us engage with youth while introducing and reinforcing the concept of readiness.”
Emergencies and disasters can happen at any time, often without warning. Empowering every Oregonian – including youth – to reduce their risk, be ready, and know what to do when disaster strikes is critical to staying safe. Kids and teens who are prepared often experience less anxiety and feel more confident during actual emergencies and disasters.
Without Warning! Wildfire features characters hiking and camping in a Northwest wilderness area who are forced to flee for their lives to escape a quickly moving wildfire. The comic helps teach readers how to protect themselves, their loved ones and wildlands when wildfires occur.
Without Warning! Wildfire is available to read for FREE at Dark Horse Digital, and on IOS and Android Apps. You can pick up a print copy at your county emergency management offices, Clackamas Community College, and Keep Oregon Green.
