“Big Fires Start Small” aims toward educating Californians about the changes that can and should be made in regard to fighting wildfires before they erupt into something uncontrollable and dangerous. Pandola urges citizens and wildfire policymakers alike to adopt a paradigm shift with the main objective of having resources available to put off all wildfires within twenty minutes, specifically with water-dropping helicopters and long-term wildfire mitigation strategies.

Beginning with a brief historical perspective, his personal experience with wildfires, supported by quotes from experts and elected officials, Pandola looks at the current wildfire paradigm and lessons from other wildfire disasters. The author also shares a scientific explanation of wildfires and the dangers of the smoke they produce. He goes on to explain the complications of fighting wildfires in California and why a paradigm shift is necessary.
