Quotes from the news wire:
The stress level has skyrocketed for us. Where you would have five, six months off for our seasonal firefighters, they're getting three months off, and if we could bring them back even sooner, we would, our career firefighters, our permanent personnel, they're spending more time away from their family, they're spending more time out of their local units, traveling the state assisting our other agencies.
It spreads our resources really thin, so the crews are working long hours, triple-digit temperatures, 115 degrees the first day we were over here, single-digit humidities. And then you add a strong wind like we had the first day, the fire growth and potential is something that we've come to see as a norm over the last four to five years but nothing like 25 years ago when I started.
