OC Fire Chief: Denied Air Assets, Firefighters Hampered, Risked

Sarah's picture

Before this falls -- or is shoved -- off the radar screen: An Orange County fire chief says lack of coordination among higher-ups deprived his firefighters of air assets, risking their safety and increasing the severity of the fire they fought. With Bush appearing tomorrow, OC FCA chief Chip Prather's concerns

are likely to be shoved onto a back burner, if not completely under the rug, by the national and even perhaps by the local media, as the "theme" for the SoCal fires is how much better the response there has been than it was in Katrina/Rita.
