It’s always my intention to talk with people who make a difference here in wine country. The couple of weeks during the fires it was two of the hard working firemen who traveled to join the fight. I thought it was important to get to  know them as people, not just firefighters. You’ll hear why they fight fires, about their appreciation for our community, and the loved ones they leave at home to save people they’ve never met. It takes an unusually caring soul to make that sacrifice. Capt. Gilbert Miguel of Kings County Fire Department & Battalion Chief Brian Price of Fresno Fire Department took time during their resting period to share their story.

This is just south of the Sonoma County Fairgrounds. Just one of the many spots were fire crews had 24 resting periods before fighting another 24 hours. There were so many trucks it wouldn’t fit in one or two photos.

Good day to you,

Here’s my full radio show that was scheduled to air today at 1:05pm on KSRO. With the latest mandatory evacuations announced for Sonoma and northeast Santa Rosa, KSRO’s full coverage of the fires will now preempt my radio show for today. If you’d like you can hear it click the player below.

For details on the latest evacuations you can visit Nixle.us. This is a direct link to the page. Needless to say, our positive thoughts and prayers go out to all affected by this on-going fire crisis in Northern California. Thanks to all who have offered their support. Here’s today’s show.
