I’m new to your site – how do I post to Family Said It? Email to you? If so , here goes…
Yes. it’s true, we families of the air tanker pilots do NOT get Public Safety Officers Benefits. And that’s only part of it.
And yes, you are right, we aerial firefighter families apparently need a “Family Said It” site of our own. Meanwhile I’ll read yours, plus the AAP site, and hope and work for progress. (It was my post, Diana: “Stand by Widows and Children” linked to below by someone here who had read the tanker board.)
Anyone want to fill me in here on how this site came about, how it helps you, etc.?
Welcome, Diana. You posted correctly. I left your intro on your post to let readers know you’re a first-timer. All you need to do to post is hit the email button at the top of any wildlandfire.com page. Familysaid is new enough that posts can just go to firstname.lastname@example.org. Sometime in the future we may designate another e-mail address to make sorting theysaid and familysaid posts easier. For now, Ab sorts. (To find out who Ab is today and the vision of the original Ab, you can read Ab Speaks by following the link on the top right of theysaid. There are more than one of us.) I’m sure familysaid contributors will tell you about familysaid.
