10/05/10 102 W - + 8 - 8 Private Protection

Then there's this story that Dave Statter found, about reactions to the private firefighters that participated in the Fourmile Canyon fire in Colorado last month. More than 1,000 firefighters and 100 engines responded, and that included 13 firefighters with five engines contracted by an insurance company. Two more trucks with four firefighters were sent by a second company. Reports this news story, the action has raised some questions on ethics. At least, as expressed in a local newspaper editoral. Read the story, and links therein for more. There are a number of sides to this one. All very interesting, of course. Happy Tuesday.
