Guy’s – In Our Own Back Yard

Guy McMahon is a resident of Brookings, Oregon. Having lived with and through the 2017 Chetco Bar Fire and the impact that fire has had on him, his family, friends, his community and the town he calls home. Guy’s perspective on Megafires, the US Forest Service and their policies, is about what you would expect; he’s NOT a big fan.

The opinions expressed and the articles that Guy will be posting will reflect his thoughts and feeling on all things fire and fire-related; specific subjects and topics and how they affect him, personally, his family, friends and his community on a daily and long-term basis.

Guy is a past Board Member and Executive Director of CWP.
