Maybe an opportunity for solar and battery stations? Or if each building had their own setup, they could be running independently. It still seems costly to setup though without subsidies but perhaps not considering the loss due to wildfires could justify government support.

If they had raked their forests they wouldn't have to worry about missing Keeping Up With The Kardashians or being in the dark.

Do people really do that? Here is my one google search worth of effort to educate myself... it didn't help. :)

I know they cut lines throughout the forest to stop fire jumping and yes I would expect the ground has to be cleared and maybe even raked, is this the context?

It was just Trump being a moron and making up a story out of thin air that Finland's leader told him they don't have forest fires because they rake their forests. Finland's leader was baffled by it and said no such thing. It was just another bizarre Trump lie that has been followed by so many more in just the last 10 months that it has been largely forgotten.

In actuality, the issue is the face of people who's parents are very closely related.
