      If they are not violent offenders,and i assume they are not because they probably would not be allowed to volunteer for this if they were then they might actually be considered. They have the training and experience so why not?

      @chris coal unfortunately not, their criminal records stop them from becoming firefighters, often because firefighters need to be EMTs as well

      Sounds like your chief has his head up his/her a.. when they need the help they need the help regardless of who needs it we help each other out and when he doesn't help other depts out he looses money for your Dept etc a out of county strike team assinment comes up the engine makes 3k a day from the time it leaves quarters to the time it comes back and the firefighter makes 750.00 a day from time he/she leaves to the time they get back iv made 3k for a 6day deployment if you don't have the resources to send them that's one thing but to have that attitude is not right cheers and I'm sorry if my attitude and what I said is offenseive not meant to be that way but that's my opinion and opinions are like assholes everyone has them and I'm sure other chiefs have the same mentalitys as yours does I can only speak for myself and how I would respond cheers and I hope your season was a univentful one sir/ma'am cheers from California

      Reduce the number of Police Vehicles paid for by the State by at least fifty percent .. and invest those funds into more Fire Fighting Equipment .. an overall better balance of public service use of taxpayers dollars. The world needs more firefighters.

      Do you want police responde times to be an hour plus? Departments are already stretched thin. They can't serve the public and have their cars taken away. What are they going to do respond on horseback?

      Must have been a slow night for the PDs and FDs! Holy hell, how many police cars do you need for a little grass fire?!

      Randy Carpadus In reply to ericpl72

      We weren't hearing the radio traffic, from the number of rigs, and where some of them were coming from, the fire was obviously bigger than a small spot. Also there is no "grass" in that area, it's brush and timber and is a critical fire danger area. The cops were for possible or actual evacuations.

      Little? Hahaha biggest understatement of the year. This isn’t a rare event like in the east coast, where it can be put out in a few minutes. With California drought, all it takes is 2 minutes and a cigarette butt to make a 5 acre wildfire, by the time they get on scene, it could be 10-15 acres.

      At first I was thinking the same thing, figured it was a slow night for the Sherriff's dept, but, considering (as others have pointed out), the number of people that may need to be notified to evacuate, you need a ton of support. I also didn't realize that this had grown to 17 acres from the original 20x20 with slow advancement

      With all the PD responding it looked more like a high speed pursuit in L.A. then a 4 acre vegetation fire.

      Canon EOS 550D camera body, but in low light conditions I prefer using a 50mm f/1.8 lens, which is not stabilized. during the day I use a standard Canon 18-55mm STM lens.
