MEDFORD, Ore. -- Almost every summer Southern Oregon experiences heavy smoke from wildfires.
All that smoke in the air has a huge impact on our health.
Thursday night, community leaders held a meeting to discuss what they can do better next fire season.
Representatives from areas of health, economic impact, tourism, agriculture and more weighed in on how fire season affects them.
The idea is to find ways to prevent and reduce the impact of fires in the future.
The meeting touched on the impact of every wildfire since the 2002 Biscuit Fire.
