​It's fire season in California, and a series of devastating wildfires are sweeping through Northern California. In San Diego, we are way too familiar with the damage and anguish these fires can cause, so when Dana & Jayson found out one of our co-workers Jim was from Santa Rosa, and trying to do something for his community, we knew we had to help too. We invited Jim on the show to talk about the efforts already underway, what his own mom is doing to help, and what you can do to contribute.
