What's all the huff about fire TV shows?

Recent discussions around "Fire Country" bring to light a bigger issue with firefighter behavior, on screen and off

In this episode of What's YOUR Problem? Chief Goldfeder answers this viewer question:

I saw recently that someone at CAL FIRE disavowed the new show “Fire Country,” saying it’s unrealistic. Aren’t all these shows unrealistic? There’s obviously a level of suspension of disbelief here, but at what point do they cross the line, showing our profession in such a skewed light that our reputation is compromised or people come to hold inaccurate ideas of what we do?"
