Giving the public short notice about the staffing change was a mistake, but the staffing change itself was not. What else should Cal Fire have expected when they boosted their fees and wanted to impose severe restrictions on local organizations? The new staff are still trained, experienced firefighters who are certainly capable of handling local emergencies. Citing the 2003 and 2007 fires as examples that we're now more "at risk" is a specious statement--those fires involved scores more firefighters, units and resources than just the Wohlford Road fire station.
