Regarding the family who is keeping track of their firefighter
Well, much to his dismay one of our sons was sent home today with a “severely sprained knee”. He sure didn’t want to leave his crew….but the doc said at least 72 hrs rest and see the ortho surgeon next week for ok to go back. Thx to the medical people out there taking care of him and everyone else…apparently they did a great job getting him taken care of and off to the hospital. So far it seems everyone is taking a real “safety first” stance and I appreciate that.
As for the place to keep up with family members out on the fires…..I agree it is very hard to keep up and the not knowing is very hard. Luckily ours was on the TACO fire in central Idaho and the Nez Pearce Forest has an awesome web site for fire info….doesn’t list crews or people but at least we knew what was happening with the big picture. Our kids are really good about calling every chance they get so we really appreciate that……cell phones are worth the cost. was terribly worried but he is home now ….
