BSL

Ok, you seem educated about fire science. But, it is the responsibility of the NCFS to deal with woods fires. Also, you are right, it is not your responsibility to defend yourself or your actions but is the responsibility of your CHIEF. You were not protecting a structure. If you were, you would have had a tanker or an engine near by to provide the protection properly. However, you did make it clear...you done what you were told. Bad decision by the person giving orders. There is no question you tried to do your job and do it right. I seriously question the person giving you orders. Also, the news media isnt picking on BSLFD, it is a fact of accountability. Just because you volunteer your time does not make you immune from liability and most of all accountability. Times are changing and so are people. And one more thing, the comments made by the Chief in this last interview were not so great, probably made this situation worse. I also happened to listen to the structure fire last night in BSL...someone needs to get ahold of this Chief and talk with him. He is the man making BSL look like idiots. You seem educated, so help him improve things.
