The article is clear enough. I'm not going to scribble on what's the best charges to file against him.
We've got to start thinking about all our first responder teams having a public safety and security component.
Whether it's a multi-agency approach eg the Fire Service responders and the local police dept or the inherent safety component ........
No more needs to be written. It's a national issue and I'm fully aware starting to think about this goes beyond our realm into public budgets. Thus, "attend the meetings" is not a useless expression.

I missed this one and, in case anyone else has hit their limit of viewing articles on LA Times (which I have), Bob's link is about a 73-yr old Redwood Valley man who fired shots at a Cal Fire engine crew parked at his property. Thankfully he missed the crew but forced them to abandon their work and flee then local command ordered at least five engines in the area to halt all firefighting and seek safety at RVFD station while deputies searched for the shooter. About six minutes later, a man called 911 “advising he’s the shooter and had some intruders in his yard,” according to sheriff’s dispatch audio.
Totally agree Bob - situational awareness is critical on all calls everywhere nowadays.
