CalFire and our local departments are basically serving the state as Cali's own army in the yearly war against fire. So grateful for these heroes, especially the local fire squads that roll up north although they already made their bones earlier in their careers and deserve to serve until retirement in the picturesque suburban setting that they've rightly earned. Thanks for suiting up and heading north to protect this state's people, communities and natural beauty
