We had to have people from the DNR with our firefighters making sure they didn’t dig up some protected grass.  Not only that but other times we have been prevented in fighting fires because of things like frogs that were “protected.”

Anonymous – PHARC Ham Club Meeting


[We listened to one of the local deputy fire chiefs who also happens to be involved with ICS in Spokane.  He was discussing a wild land brush fire where they were prevented from properly fighting the fire because of the status of some grass and a frog in the area.  See they were protected and thus you couldn’t dare disturb them or do anything that might disturb them.  This included trying to head the fire off.  To which I replied:

“So it was better to just let them all burn to death instead of stopping the wild fire and possibly saving a bunch… Our government at work.”

Yeah, that’s about par for the course. –B]

    You know that you can predict this sort of thing, from the way things have been going. What is really alarming is when you project the line we’re on, out into the future.
