Episode details

On this week’s show:

  • Full Operational Update of Current Fires. Cooks Peak, Hermits Peak, Tunnel, Crooks, Nebraska, and Colorado fires.

  • New Executive Order a Missed Opportunity. We talk about what the EO is and how it missed on a few levels.

  • Canada Retention Issues. Canada’s fire unions pleading with policy makers for help. Policy makers turn a blind eye.

  • The Scooper Fleet. Canada has dedicated cash to update their existing fleet.

  • Oregon Battles DC. Their cooperative agreement expires in 2024 and they can’t agree on the rules.

  • Congress Doesn't Get It. No one is taking responsibility for the issues we have.
