As wildfires scorch Oklahoma, state groups and charitable organizations scramble to meet the needs of those affected by the blaze. But fires are unfortunately nothing new to the state. We speak with officials in one town that has learned the hard way how to prevent fire--and the best way to battle the flames. We speak with StateImpact Oklahoma Digital Reporter Joe Wertz about the volunteer firefighters that throw caution--and their day jobs--to the wind to save others. Plus, school funding has some officials fuming, the 2012 Kids Count report bumps the state up in the rankings of child welfare to an unenviable 40th place, and the art of the tattoo, on this episode of ONR.

Many of the men and women who have been fighting the wildfires across the state don't do it as a full-time job. Most are volunteer firefighters, people with other employment they drop at a moment's notice to save people's homes and lives. StateImpact Oklahoma has been following volunteer firefighters, and we spoke with StateImpact's Joe Wertz about these volunteers and the strain huge wildfires place on their shoulders.

Wildfires in Oklahoma are nothing new in Oklahoma, so much so that state officials can nearly pinpoint potential fires before they happen. Meanwhile, communities have learned hard lessons about preparing for potential fires, battling incoming flames, and maybe most crucial, the importance of looking out for one another.

Caring for livestock has long been part of Oklahoma's agricultural industry, but growing global demand for meat has led to cases of deplorable conditions at livestock production companies, bringing the companies under the scrutiny of their customers--and the Kirkpatrick Foundation. The group is launching a new initiative aimed at promoting animal welfare across the state, and helping them kick off their campaign is Dr. Bernard Rollin, the father of modern veterinary ethics. We spoke to Dr. Rollin about his work in animal welfare, and how livestock producers can pair the demands of consumers with the need for humane treatment of animals.

On this episode of ONR, we take a look at the drought gripping the state and many of it's industries. The heat is hitting agriculture hard, but so is a shortage of young farmers replacing retiring baby boomers. But there are some who say they can't think of a better career to pursue than that which requires a tractor. The Olympics might be in London, but some Olympians are right here in Oklahoma, recalling the joy of going for the gold. Plus, an all-new take on meals on wheels, animals get a helping hand, and we remember a local legislative legend on this ONR.
