The Record finds that California's fire service is largely unregulated and disregarded by residents until they have to dial 911. The reports showed that among San Joaquin County's 21 fire districts protecting nearly 200,000 people, budgets, training, equipment and performance vary wildly, from firefighters who do not know how to drive fire engines or refuse to wear federally required protective clothing to firefighters trained as paramedics.
