LA TIMES COVERAGE OF SURVEY

The Los Angeles Times covered The Survey in an article on 14 June 2022 by Alex Wigglesworth entitled Hellish fires, low pay, trauma: California's Forest Service firefighters face a morale crisis.


“Mental health issues have also become an increasing problem as fires have grown more dangerous and damaging. In a recent survey of more than 700 current and former wildland firefighters conducted by a Forest Service firefighter and advocate, 78.5% of respondents reported mental health issues they attributed to the stresses of fighting fire, while just 32.3% said they felt they had the time and resources to seek help."
