What a difference a chief makes! Kudos to Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer for giving police investigators credit for their diligence, hard work and dedication to the Fresno community.
On the other hand, the recent rescue of three children from a house fire by Fresno firefighters (as filmed by a GoPro helmet camera) brought forth a lack-luster response from the Fresno Fire Department chief, “They [the firefighters] just did what they are trained to do.”
I guess the risks taken by the firefighting crews to make such daring rescues is either considered commonplace or unimportant by the chief. This illustrates just one reason for the lack of confidence the rank and file firefighting force has in the FFD executive staff.
Regardless of the chiefs, the citizens of the Fresno have good reason to be proud of their first responders.
