Just to get started…I want to thank Abs for acting so quickly on getting us a list. I know I felt out of place on the FF list. They were very nice and put up with me and my “out of the loop” remarks and mom type questions. So my thanks to them. And I will still be lurking for info…….
Just a way of introduction: I am mom to three firefighters, two girls and one guy (our baby). My husband is also a structure FF, Engineer. We live in the Northwest right in the middle of all the fires this year. So life is hectic to say the least. I am so used to tones going off around here when the door bell rings I start looking for somebody’s boots…..kidding. Hope you will give us an intro to yourselves, you don’t have to use your real name or tell us too much…just a place to get started…..hoping to have lots of conversation.
I agree we are a large group of people and as mothers and wives we are unstoppable….we can certainly get the shelter in the public eye if nothing else. Any ideas on who to write or how to start? I received a letter from one of the shelter inventors and I will post the info from that asap….I don’t think any of us would hesitate to buy the new shelters personally if they were available but apparently the powers that be will not let our people use them on the fires. I will write him again and see if I can get a press release for the two newspapers in my area. Maybe that is a start.
