My brother-in-law is a fireman here near Sacramento and almost got sent to SoCal on a strike team yesterday, but as of now he's still at home - a different team went and I think he's not going to go. He did get sent down to LA a few weeks/months (?) ago for another fire but never actaully made it to the fire itself before the team he was on was sent back. I think someone overreacted that time and sent down way too many teams. Looks like this isn't a concern this time, unfortunately.
Good luck to everyone down there fighting the good fight!
I do think that folks really need to re-evaluate where they live with the fire dangers that come from living in some of these areas.Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.
