Once again, our state is dealing with fires sweeping through areas in Northern and Southern California! Our CHP dispatchers, CALFIRE dispatchers, State Parks dispatchers, and State Hospital dispatchers are being expected to work during these extreme events. Some of you are being pushed to your limits while worrying about your own homes and the safety of your families. Our prayers go out to each and everyone one of you for the safety of your family, property, and yourselves. Each of you are arriving at work and giving everything to help others and we are very proud of each and every one of you. Please reach out if you are overwhelmed, your union site representatives and directors are all here for you. We are your support team, even if you simply need someone to vent to or cry with. This is a very difficult and stressful time and we stand ready to help.
