Author Kurt Kamm comes back this week as a special guest on this episode of the Disaster Podcast. Last week we talked about his books about firefighters and other first responders and how he had gotten access to extensive training opportunities not usually available to civilians. This week we move on to talk about his new book Tunnel Visions that weaves a true story of a tunnel disaster in Los Angeles with a modern theme of the dangers of terrorism and man-made disasters.
Kurt’s Background and Author Bio
Imagine being at the edge of a wildfire, knowing that your home, your neighborhood, and everything familiar is about to go up in flames.
As a resident of Southern California, Kurt Kamm was used to the idea of wildfires. Then, in 2006, one of the infamous Malibu wildland fires, the 60 mile-per-hour Santa Ana wind-driven Canyon Fire, burned to Kamm’s front door and destroyed the homes of several of his neighbors. Kurt had just begun his writing career and the lessons he learned from the County Fire Department while writing his first book helped him save his home.
