Los Angeles Fire Departments

Thank you to all who are thinking of and praying for our firefighters. My nephew was on a strike team yesterday but is home now resting, recharging so he can return to his post.

The fire departments here in Southern California aren't always fighting fires, although this week it seems like they do. Sometimes they rescue boaters whose capacity to sail extends beyond their ability to control their craft.


Heroes are everywhere!

I'm relieved to know your nephew is safe. It does seem like the worst of the Station fire is over, hopefully.

Watching the news reminds me of your circumstances. And they said the fire season is just beginning...oh, I sure hope there will be some intervention.

Still thinking of you especially as the Angeles National Park area is not too far from you.

A very interesting thing -- The word verification here today is RESCUE!

I have a BIL who's a retired LAPD motorcycle cop. He's a crusty old fart with a heart of gold. He grumps a lot, but he's the one who turns out and gets things done. Some guys are natural heros. Ya gotta love 'em.

Yes, they are heroes--even on the water. (That water looked so refreshing.)

I have a brief update on Mt. Wilson

Yes, we salute these brave young ( and not so young) people who are willing to go out there and do hard things for us!
They are brave indeed.
Yes, September is such a lovely month.
