Sammi – please post the site for ordering the honoring ribbons for fallen firefighters
BB, thanks for the link to post messages to those on the Star. (unfortunately I was unable to post)
TO ALL: if you were unable to catch the CSpan special, get a copy! View it TWICE. Although it provides a good overview of the wildland fire scene, not many western fire camps, except at a major complex provide all those anemities.
COMMENTS: by-passing Mr Pendleton & Mr Hamilton (good panel): lots of clean faces & new nomex on camera at the Green Knoll.â€¨1) of major concern to me, was the amount of jewelry worn by those fire fighters – if ya can’t have steel in the boots, why would anyone want to have metal ANYWHERE on the body?â€¨2) I was very disappointed by the political non-speak of Rep Peterson’s response.â€¨3) did anyone notice how the “kids” on the line could not explain their desire to be willdland firefighters – it’s indescribable! Otis Root (Sho Ban shots) probably expressed it most eloquently. (personally, I especially liked the interview with Ricky Dann)â€¨4) pay close attention to the interview with Mr Carvelho – he has been around for a long time & didn’t gain his reputation easily. Pray that when he retires someone equally competent can fill his shoes.â€¨5) won’t comment on the callers…………….. nor the short cut off on the part of the moderator.
