Political Firefighters, Butte County
Posted in the Oroville Forum
#1 Apr 3, 2013
I worked as a seasonal summer firefighter in Butte County 4 summers while attending college. On my crew, there was a nephew of a full-time permanent CDF employee, a grandson of another, and the brother of a third. On fires, these 3 resisted fighting fire, doing as little as possible (occasionally nothing). Fires became difficult to contain because of these 3 "free riders." Fires that should have been small got big.
Has anyone else who worked for the Thermalito Hdqtrs of Cal Fire experienced or heard of other free-riding family-connected "firefighers"?
