RIVERSIDE, Calif. — Riverside County wants to absorb the county's network of volunteer fire departments and convert them to a reserve force similar to the Sheriff's Department reserve deputies.
The move, under discussion for four years, is intended to standardize training, avoid confusion over who is in charge at accident scenes, among other goals.
