My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the pilots killed in California. Thanks for the address for the Groff memorial
When we were talking about emailing and mailing to the powers that be about the need for a new fire shelter, someone asked who the head of the Forest Service is. According to their website, the Chief is Dale Bosworth and his mailing address is: 
Forest Service 
U.S Department of Agriculture 
Sidney R. Yates Federal Building 
201 14th Street, SW at Independence Ave., SW 
Washington, DC 20250
Another person who may (or may not!) be someone we can contact about the need for a new fire shelter is Robert Lewis, Jr., Deputy Chief of Research and Development. Both these names were pulled off their webpage and I’d like to think they’re up to date, but if any of you know something different, please let us know too.
I’ve been looking at the Family Said page and checking the They Said page, but I’m not remembering if our email and mail campaign for the 1st and 15th is both places – is it? I’m emailing my family and friends around the country, asking them to email and mail, too.
Sammi, you seem to be the leader: keeping in mind that someone mentioned that there may be reprisals against our FFs, do we want to contact the national office, too, about the need for a new shelter or do we need to be careful that our loved ones on the firelines won’t be negatively affected?
Take care – and thanks for the support all of you show.
