On Tuesday, Jan. 10, I attended an open pubic meeting at the Idyllwild Fire Department.

I was there to show my support for former Chief Norm Walker. I believe he can do his job at the Idyllwild Fire Department.

He has compassion and strength and high energy to get the mission done.

Give him his respect. All firefighters can take the heat.

Hopefully, in the future, to create income for the department, they can start up a full-time fire fighting and medical training facility resource center on the mountain — classes all year long.
