This presentation describes the worst natural disaster in the history of SW Kansas, a prairie wildfire that consumed 800,000 acres of grassland, homes, and livestock. The relief efforts were spectacular, with hay, fencing, cattle, and labor donations pouring in from across America. Veterinarians played a significant role in organizing relief efforts for the stricken community. It was truly an opportunity to serve, and the veterinarians' training and experience with problem solving was a significant asset to the relief effort.
