IF YOU SEE IT ON THE NEWS IT WILL NOT HAPPEN TO YOU. Unfortunately most people do not understand this.
It's more accurate to say 'seeing something on the news does not make it any more or less likely to happen to you. Unless you are watching tsunami coverage in a zone that's expecting that Tsunami, or you're watching reporting on a giant fire that's heading for your community.
The tone of your post suggested that all I have to do to protect myself from a forest fire is to watch it on the news. Then it won't happen to me.
