  • California Wildfires..Please Watch Over our Brothers and Sisters

    I just wanted to start this thread so that we can take a moment and offer some concern, prayers and hope for our brothers and sisters on the fireline out there.

    My god watch over them and keep them all safe. With the devastation that has already occurred, we can be thankful that so far all of them are safe. Their struggle is a rough one as they battle what has already been termed as the most expensive and destructive fire in the history of California. Governor Arnold was on CNN this AM expressing his concern, praise and support for the firefighters. One spokesman said that the only way to combat it may be to let the Pacific Ocean put it out. As I type this I see on the news that the Santa Anna Winds that had subsided were promised to return today. I saw that the National Guard had been called in and my Captain who is on a Federal Red Team has been waiting for a call.

    Praying:
    We can only ask that as all our brothers and sisters converge on this monstor to battle it to the end, that you [God](the Big Fire Chief) watches over them and keeps them safe so they can return home to their families. Please do not take any more of our brothers from us. The Nation's Firefighters have suffered enough over the past 3 years. Watch over our brothers and sisters and give them guidance, hope and protection as they risk their lives to protect others property despite the potential consequences. Give them strength to move on and get control over this monstor.
    [b]AMEN[b]

    I have a friend who is a Captain in Riverside Ca and they contract with CADOF during these events. I have not heard from him in days.

          I spoke to a friend of mine who lives about 4 miles north of the Mexican border in southern San Diego, just uphill from Coors Ampitheatre. He has lived in S.D. for 20 years and has never seen anything like this. The air is dark and choking. He dosent think his home is in imminent danger but his wife is stuck in Phoenix with her 91 year old mother. He has friends taht have lost their homes. I was just out there 3 weeks ago. It hasnt rained in 173 days. The toll in lives has already been terrible. Lets pray that it dosent get worse.

                Stay safe out there Bou!

                I have a really good friend that left Pittsburgh tonight with 3 of his men for Simi Valley. Their plane gets in at 630pm Pacific time and they'll be on the firelines by 930pm. I too will pray for everyone's safety, Mickey's most of all.

                Thank you Stan.

                          In a breaking news story Fox News just reported that one Firefighter was killed and two injured/burned when they were overrun by one of the San Diego Fires.

                              My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of our fallen brothers/sisters and to the members of their department or agency. May God take care of them and help to guide them in this tragic even in thier lives. My he give the ones still on the line strength to carry on and win the battle over the beast in the name of our fallen brothers/sisters. May we win this battle with not one more loss of life, be it civilian or fire service. God watch over the two injured and help them pull through. Please watch over all our brothers and sisters who are out there in this living H*L*!
