Texas Fires: Rick Perry Calls for FEMA Help Due to Budget Cuts for Fire Departments
Under Rick Perry this year, Texas slashed state funding for the volunteer fire departments that protect most of the state from wildfires like the ones that have recently destroyed more than 700 homes.

Volunteer departments that were already facing financial strain were slated to have their funding cut from $30 million to $7 million, according to KVUE.

The majority of Texas is protected by volunteer fire departments. There are 879 volunteer fire departments and only 114 paid fire departments. Another 187 departments are a combination.

For that reason, aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) could be more important than ever to the state where wildfires have recently been raging.

Yeah, it's all show and he's all talk. He's quoted in one of the articles as saying that he'll put all of his differences with FEMA aside until after the crisis. Go figure...
