They Always Need More Firefighters In California
"CHESTER CITY, Pa. — A Chester City firefighter was suspended without pay Thursday for refusing to remove an American flag sticker from his locker. Story here.
Firefighters can post personal items inside the lockers, but the outside must remain "free of alteration," according to the directive.
Some firefighters didn’t think the American flag was included in the ban. The flag is stitched on their uniforms, hangs on their trucks, and flies on a pole out front."
People who live in southern California live with an increased awareness of dry plants near the house and shingles on the roof. Big no-no's.
El Nino country. Wind. Brush fires. Homes at risk.
If the Pennsylvania firefighter loses his job, he should contact any of the larger southern California fire departments for an application!
