It is sad to hear and see first hand budget problems. Line of work I do we deal a lot with the PD and to hear them even say they are delayed to FD over public radio is sad. Rolling up unto this non-injury accident after being out with friends and seeing the rescue leaving the scene with no PD on scene, I decided to wait around until the PD arrives, just to catch another driver slam into these vehicle in the middle of the block.
These fires in Southern California are reminding me of 1983, when I first started taking Fire Photography and I was still part of the LACoFD Explorer program. Now the only difference is I read about it instead of being part of it since I live in another State. http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/wildfires/
