During the last several days, as I watched firefighters battle the Springs Fire in Ventura County, I was extremely impressed by their skill, hard work and courage. We are truly fortunate to have such dedicated men and women looking out for our safety.

I will be giving a donation to my local fire station to show my appreciation.
