I find many of these narratives very concerning.

I have noticed recently that I do see a lot of new faces who I don't yet know well at SAR incidents when there might be a couple of dozen rangers on scene.
While i agree they may be understaffed
Dec numbers have been increasing year over year
2% budget increase every year for past several years
Currently there are 134 forest rangers in dec
