L.A. County Supervisor blames mud slides on USFS

The Ramblings of a Chief Officer web site has an article about a member of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors who is blaming the U. S. Forest Service for the recent storm damage and mud slides in the Station Fire area. This is the same Supervisor, Mike Antonovich, that last month had the lame-ass idea to spend millions on a fire detection system so that fire departments could…

….identify new fires as they start and have a programmed airborne response within minutes to suppress the fire before it spreads.

He is just another politician that spreads the myth that aircraft put out wildfires. Check out the Ramblings article HERE.
