- Richard Bowers Fairfax County Fire Chief
In our first segment today with Fairfax County’s fire chief, a caller made a threatening comment during our conversation about how the department handles issues related to harassment and discrimination. This isn’t the kind of environment we seek to provide for our guests and our listeners on a daily basis. So we’d like to apologize to both the chief and those of you listening today. It’s our mission to make sure this is a place where we can all come to have civil conversations about the issues most important to our communities – and that’s what we’ll continue to do.
