Local Fire Agency Perspective
Fire Chief Michael D. Brown
“The cost share negotiating process was adversarial, territorial and appeared to emphasize cost savings over cooperation. The USFS techniques used are more like strong arm tactics then cost sharing. Negotiating a cost share agreement while a fire attack is being conducted is like negotiating costs with your surgeon during the middle of your heart surgery”.
