  1. Why is it they scheduled training burn days during our most vulnerable fire time. Do they want to pour gas on a fire? So to speak. Every year these prescribed burns surprisingly/unexpectedly get out of hand. Seems counter productive to busy our fire crews with putting out intentionally set fires. Perhaps instead they should assist other fire crews that are currently fighting fires that threaten life and property. The way I see it the so called “prescribed burns” that seem to somehow get out of control. Are just ways for the Powers that be to bypass certain regulations that may be in the way of their agenda. For example if a certain property burns. Then all those red tape reports such as EIR. Are no longer a road block. Their agenda can now be played off as a benefit to a tragic and unexpected tragedy.
