7:03 am
>> brought to you by toyota, let's go places. >> welcome to "cbs this morning." there is an incredible amount of news this morning. >> when we say the news is back in the morning, we're exactly talking about what's happening today. >> it's news on top of news on top of news. >> so we'll start with this. an historic overnight meeting. north and south korea agreed to work towards denuclear rising the korean peninsula and formally ending the korean war. raised their arms in a show of unity. look at that. they promised to pursue peace. but left many of the details for later talks. the. >> two men met and shook hands at the border along korea's demil demild demilemilitarized zone. kim became the first north korean leader to set foot on south korean soil.
7:04 am
ben tracy is in the south korean capital, seoul. >> reporter: good morning. the summit heavy on both style and substance. kim jong-un is saying what he's agreed to is just the tip of the iceberg and he actually plans to follow through on the agreement. this is a moment no one could have predicted just a few months ago. but after signing their agreement, kim jong-un and president moon jae-in were clearly pleased at what they accomplished. the south korean president declared a new era of peace on the korean peninsula. the two koreas a degreed to officially end the korean war by the end of the year, resume reunions of families separated during the conflict. and turn dtthe dme into what th call a genuine peace zone. moon will visit north korea for a second summit this fall. the two leaders seemed to have an instant rapport the minute
7:05 am
kim jong-un made history by beening the first north korean leader to step into south korea. south korea literally rolled out the red carpet for their once recent enemy. and the two men were often seen smiling and even laughing together. after planting a pine tree, a symbol of peace, they sat alone for a full 30 minutes in what appeared to be an in depth conversation. but north korea agreeing to the denuclearization of the korean peninsula was the ultimate goal of this summit. so far there are no specifics as to how or when that will happen or what kim jong-un wants in return. >> the devil is in the details. >> reporter: in-bum chun is a retired general of the south korean army. he's been surprised by kim jong-un's pivot towards peace. are you buying what he's selling? >> i'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt with a certain dose of caution.
7:06 am
i'm going to wait and see. i don't think i'm going to have to wait too long. >> reporter: now, we should mention that north korea has promised to denuclearize in the past and has not done that. kim seems committed to no longer launching missiles. he joked he's no longer going to interrupt president moon's sleep with those early morning rocket launches. gayle. >> all right, so he's got jokes too. ben tracy in seoul, thank you very much. the agreement helps pave the way for president trump's planned summit with kim jong-un. major garrett is at the white house with that part of the story. major, how is the president responding to this new agreement? >> reporter: good morning. several presidential tweets, one of them thanking chinese president xi jinping for making this an easier and less lengthy process. another, in all caps, declaring happily an end to the korean war. and a third mentioning that good things are happening but, quote, only time will tell. and it's that note of caution that reflects a u.s. desire for
7:07 am
north korea to follow through on these commitments. how and when will north korea denuclearization? if it does, will it also reduce troop strength on the demilitarized zone? and will that include dismantling artillery and ballistic missiles? the ballistic missiles, u.s. allies in the region. while the white house waits for answers to those questions, sarah sanders, the president of press secretary, released a statement last night, saying an that the white house looks forward to, quote, robust discussion continuing with the north about a potential summit between president trump and kim jong-un in, quote, the coming weeks. >> all right, major, thank you for your reporting. cbs news senior national contributor michael morrell is a former cia acting director. these pictures so rich with symbolism, but where will the real substance be done about whether north korea will disarm its nuclear program?
7:08 am
>> they will be done in the trump/kim summit, not in this summit. this summit was all aspirations. south korea can't end the korean war. south korean can't get north korea to denuclearize. only the united states and united nations can do that so the real work is yet to come. >> but president trump has called in the past for a complete denuclearization. is that going to happen? >> so the next summit, the kim/trump summit, is going to be a lot harder than this one. because both countries are coming at it with very different expectations. north korea's expectation is we are now a nuclear weapon state, treat us like one. we're willing to negotiate limits to our program to get rid of the sanctions. we're coming at it from the perspective of we have strangleled you with sanctions, now give up your program and then we'll be willing to get rid of them. the real hard work, the really tough work is yet to come. >> do we have an assessment, mike, of what has gotten them to the table? is it the president saying --
7:09 am
being very strong as he says on military or is it the sanctions? is it the fact they can't get energy? >> i think one of the really interesting differences here is that both sides, both the united states and north korea, are coming to the table for different reasons. both sides are misreading the other side. we think that we brought north korea to the table by putting our arms around our neck and squeezing with sanctions. north korea is come ing to the table because they think they're a nuclear weapon state. they're dragging us to the table because we're afraid of them and that status. >> is there a middle place, shorting of mothballing the entire north korean nuclear program, that the u.s. could get to that would allow an agreement but wouldn't get all the way to mothballing it? >> so this is the fundamental policy question that the trump administration's going to have to deal with, right, are we going to continue to push for full denuclearization, which i don't believe is possible, or are we going to settle somewhere in the middle with limits on the program, limits on the number of
7:10 am
weapons, limits on the number of missiles, limits on the range of those missiles? >> whatever the reasons to get us here, the optics look good this morning. is this a feather in the cap for donald trump? >> so i think the president deserves credit for getting us this far. no president has push as much pressure on north korea as donald trump has. and that's a good thing. i think that the outcome of last night's summit is not surprising. both north korea and south korea desperately want the kim/trump summit to happen, right, and they wanted their talks to be extraordinarily positive. >> yes. and trump and president moon had said from a long time ago they want to have these bilateral talks, sit knee to knee, and it is happening. >> well, to be continued for sure. we'll see you a little bit later on. do not go anywhere. bill cosby could spend the rest of his life behind bars for a sexual assault conviction that is front page news in his
7:11 am
hometown paper, the philadelphia enquirer. it's actually front page news through the entire country. the jury found him guilty of drugging and molesting andrea constand in 2004. cosby faces up to 30 years in prison. he is still free on bail. he is the first celebrity to be convicted in the era of the me too movement. adrianna diaz is outside the courthouse in pennsylvania with more on this story. adriana, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. when the bombshell was read, some shrieked with relief. it took jurors 14 hours to convict the man once known as "america's dad." three of the more than 60 cosby accusers walked out of the pennsylvania courtroom thursday, shaking with emotion following the guilty verdict. >> i feel like my faith in humanity has been restored. >> reporter: accuser lili bernard was there for every day of the trial. >> i'm so weak with emotion
7:12 am
right now and with gratitude that i can barely stand. >> reporter: it was a long and emotional trial for the women who were defeated less than a year ago when another jury deadlocked on the same charges against cosby. the trial focused on andrea constand who accused bill cosby of drugging and molesting her at his philadelphia home 14 years ago. >> mr. cosby, do you have any reaction? >> reporter: cosby's always maintained his relationship with constand was consensual. five other women testified cosby also assaulted them. >> i feel free. i feel free. >> reporter: one of those women was chelan lasha, who claims cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in a hotel room when she was 17 years old. she said the verdict is vindicating. >> i'm glad that the truth is out. i didn't have $1 billion. i only had the truth. >> reporter: shortly after the verdict was read, the district attorney argued cosby's a flight risk and should be thrown in jail. cosby lashed out and called him an a-hole.
7:13 am
>> the jury has spoken with one voice. >> reporter: district attorney kevin steele. >> we hope that this case sends a strong message that the victims of these types of crimes can come forward and be heard. >> reporter: cosby's defense says it will appeal. >> we don't think mr. cosby's guilty of anything. and the fight is not over. >> reporter: just hours after the verdict, three more universities rescinded cosby's honorary degrees. he had to forfeit his passport and he can't leave the county until his sentencing, which is expected in 60 to 90 days. john. >> at adriana, thanks. the in thtrial, the judge let oa cusers testify, was that the key? >> it really was the death nell for bill cosby pretrial. in the first trial, you had one other accuser who was trying to
7:14 am
supplement what could be considered in that day and age a weaker case of andrea constand. in today's world of me too, you had andrea constand's story with an explanation from a rape trauma expert as to why people continue relationships with the person they've accused, why they contact them, why they may be with them again, when that's bolstered by five others to try and show a common scheme or plan, where he would lure them into an environment he controlled, where he would drug them and then take advantage of them by indecently sexually assaulting them. you can't beat six accusers. >> cosby's team says they will appeal. what are the grounds for appeal here? >> well, the appeal is hardly frivolous. they have many, many grounds. starting with the fact that the same judge who knew he had a hung jury with one other accuser then entered with five. you can go all the way back, gayle, all the way back to when
7:15 am
bill cosby was promised, he says, that he would not be prosecuted. therefore, he took place in a civil situation in a civil suit, where he made statements which were then in a sealed deposition, which came into this case, including the fact he had gotten prescriptions for quaaludes back in the day when he wanted to have sex with women. you also have issues about evidence that the defense thought was exculpatory, including other witnesses that was excluded, and then of course we have issues about the jurors, including a juror who allegedly said that he thought cosby was guilty before the trial actually began. this will be a formidable appeal. does not mean it will be successful. >> rikki, time and again during this trial, bill cosby's attorneys attacked these women with blistering personal attacks, calling them a con artist, a pathological liar. in the midst of this me too movement, did those backfire?
7:16 am
>> well, the defense has no choice in the sense that they have to cross examine. the cross examination is a great engine of truth. but it depends how you cross examine. so you didn't have to only show one was lying, you had to show six were lying. in the era of the me too movement, when a woman's accusation alone is presumed to be true, to denigrate these women, to eviscerate these women, certainly could not sit well with certain of these jurors. it did not sit well with the public. and that had to be the elephant in the room. people don't want women who may have been sexually assaulted, harassed or abused, whether it was yesterday or 30 years ago, to have to go through something like this. but after all, it's the american jury system. >> all right, thanks so much, rikki klieman. we'll talk more about the impact of the verdict on the

accusers with the lawyer who represents 33 of them, gloria allred, in studio 57, ahead on "cbs this morning." a former federal judge will review documents seized from the president's personal lawyer, michael cohen. the fbi searched cohen's home, office and hotel room this month for evidence of possible fraud stemming from the stormy daniels case. the former judge will decide if any of that material is protected by attorney/client privilege. the president acknowledged for the first time yesterday that cohen made a deal on his behalf to silence the adult film star who claimed she had sex with mr. trump in 2006. >> represents me, like with this crazy stormy daniels deal, he represented me, and, you know, from what i see, he did absolutely nothing wrong. >> well, the president downplayed his ties with cohen, saying the self-described fixer handles very little of his legal work. we just learned britain's royal baby will be named, are you ready, louie.

football again. >> welcome back to "cbs this morning." here are three things you should know this morning. the new secretary of state pompeo is meeting with nato officials in brussels. he began his first official trip just hours after he was sworn in. the senate confirmed his nomination yesterday on the 57-42 vote. hours later, the white house released photos of pompeo's secret meeting with kim jong-un over the easter weekend. the president is counting on pompeo to help lead the upcoming negotiations between the u.s. and north korea. many schools in arizona and colorado are closed for a second straight day as tens of thousands of teachers continue a walkout. about 50,000 teachers marched through the arizona state capital yesterday demanding raises and more school funding. teachers also gathered in colorado's capital. lawmakers there say they will set aside an additional $150 million for schools this year. more than 1 million students are missing class due to the protest. and amazon is raising the cost of its annual prime

membership in the u.s. from $99 to $119 next month. that could create an extra $2 billion in profits. amazon's stock opened at an all-time high this morning after reporting massive first quarter profits yesterday. the company's earnings per share were nearly triple what analysts expected. more than 60 women have accused bill cosby of drugging and sexually a sassaulting them. attorney gloria allred represents 33 of the accusers. allred said a court of law finally believed women. >> bill cosby, three words for you. guilty, guilty, guilty. >> three of allred's clients testified at cosby's retrial. gloria allred joins us at the table. good to see you, mrs. allred. >> good morning. >> i heard you, paraphrasing, saying this was one of the happiest days in your career. were you surprised by the verdict? >> very surprised, shocked.
7:33 am
>> why? >> because, first of all, in the first criminal trial, the jury deadlocked. secondly, it's a very high burden of proof. guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. and in the case of a celebrity who's on trial, such as mr. cosby, sometimes jurors feel they need even more proof than beyond a reasonable doubt. sometimes they feel they need it right up here. to a virtual certainty. which is not the law. >> what made it different this time? >> i think what was different was, in fact, the court allowed five prior bad acts, witnesses to testify. in the first trial, even though the prosecution asked the court to allow it, to put on 13 other accusers, prior bad act witnesses, the court only allowed one. the defense of course wanted no prior bad act witnesses. this time, the same judge decided, okay, this time five other accusers can testify.
7:34 am
they were very strong. very vigorous cross examination. frankly, a smear campaign waged against all of the accusers. trying to discredit them, trying to challenge them. they held their own. i was very proud of them. >> another thing that's different a year later is the me too movement. >> yes. >> across this country. how much of an impact did that have? >> well, i do think, norah, it had some impact. in the sense that women are now being believed in greater numbers. but of course even though more than half million, maybe up to 1 million now, have gone on #metoo on the internet and say what they've told is the truth of their lives, the abuse, the sexual assault. so on the internet of course there are no rules. there are no tan zards. and, really, there is no due process for anybody. now in the court of law, there's strict rules.
7:35 am
people are under oath, they have to tell the truth. >> you said how many women does it take for one woman? >> over the denial of a rich, famous, powerful man. in this case it took six. the five other accusers, plus the very brave andrea constand. i want to ask give credit to my 33 accusers of mr. cosby who came forward in the court of public opinion of course. they were not believed. as more and more women came forward, the public began to say wait, there's something going on here. >> and of course mr. cosby's lawyer said the fight's not over. he's going to appeal. what do you think about that? >> well, john, of course he's going to appeal because mr. cosby could be facing ten years, maybe even more, of prison. but just because you're going to appeal doesn't mean you're going to be successful on appeal. i think this judge was very fair to both sides. he let the defense put in for
7:36 am
example, margerry jackson. the prosecution protested to that. >> do you think bill cosby should go to jail? >> i do think that he should serve time in custody for this. i mean this -- >> i heard he was possibly facing up to 30 years. >> well, that's true, because ten years on each count convicted on each count. >> how much time do you think he should spend -- >> i'll leave that up to the court. but there is going to be a sexually violent predator assessment. and we'll see. but i do think that he should spend time in custody. he has hurt. he has damaged. help has chan he has changed the lives of so many of his victims. i know he's only on trial for one, but still i think he needs to pay pay price. >> but the price he has to pay has to do with his case, but also what kind of message does that send to other women who might want to come forward about
7:37 am
taking on powerful men? >> i think it sends a great message. a powerful man is not just a celebrity. it could be it somebody in the sports world, the religious world, the business world, the education world, in your own family. someone who has taken advantage of his position of power and betrayed the trust that the person who was vulnerable and less powerful has had in that person. so yes, times, they are changing, and i'm just very, very happy about the empowerment of women and the victory in this case. >> gloria allred, thank you. >> thank you. former nbc news correspondent tom brokaw is accused of groping her more than 20 years ago. why she's going public now with her allegations against the longtime anchor. and we invite you to subscribe to our cbs this morning newscast for the news of the day, extended interviews and podcast originals. you can find them all on itunes and apple's app. cbs podcast. you're watching "cbs this morning." farxiga, along with diet and exercise,

8:02 am
security sandy winnefeld. good morning. suffice it to say. we have the best people with us here in the morning to talk about north korea. we're so glad. because there's so much to talk about. let me start with you, admiral winnefeld. they're talking about the official end of the korean war. what would that mean? >> well, first of all, i would tell you that michael and i both last summer when it looked like war was going to break out in the north dkorean peninsula, we take a deep breath. it's not going to happen. now that there's peace, we say this is a long way to go. it's going to take a lot to have it be a peaceful place. >> and the kind of talk helpful and will it be helpful going forward in terms of u.s. military activity around north korea? >> well, you know, i think both sides were sort of coming into each other, sort of talking past each other, and we feel to a
8:03 am
degree we're correct, that we put a lot of economic pressure and military pressure on north korea to come to the table. north korea as michael pointed out earlier in the broadcast, hey, we have nuclear weapons and we're dragging the u.s. to the table. both sides feel they're in a position of strength and it's going to be interesting to see how it plays out. >> what should the united states be looking at now? you look at the optics, they're both crossing back and forth which as a layperson, you're saying, this looks very impressive. >> what we have to do now is prepare the president for the summit with kim. and to prepare him for that, he have to be clear with the president. here's what north korea's objectives are and here's what kim jong-un is going to do to try to pursue that and that should be the focus. >> can kim jong-un be trusted now? should he be given the benefit of the doubt, both of you? >> no. no. >> no. >> the kim regimes, three of them now have shown over and over a willingness to make an
8:04 am
agreement and then either break that agreement or cheat on that agreement. so whatever we agree to, there's got to be a very tough verification regime. >> the president has the new national security team, a new secretary of state. in the past, though, president trump has said north korea must scrap its weapons programs before any relief of sanctions. do you think he's going to be able to hold the line on that? >> i think what just happened was very clearly choreographed to try to set up a more gradual process where there may be some sanctions relief, there may be compromises by north korea on its weapons program. and i think the vital question will be whether president trump can declare victory by still allowing kim a little bit more time to get rid of his nuclear weapons program, if he's even willing to do that while he builds confidence in the survival of his regime. >> i was there in june with president trump when he talked about the bilateral talks.
8:05 am
i think for us to remember, we have 30,000 troops there. we have a huge american commitment on the korean peninsula. what does it mean for them, those military families? >> well, i think even if there's a peace agreement we will probably remain on the peninsula just to be a buttress for south korea, to build their confidence, that this is not a mirage. just as we have troops in europe. i think we'll be on the northern peninsula for quite some time. >> mike, the iran deal, critics say it didn't wipe out the iranian program. they could still start it in the future. given what people are calling half measures in iran, how should we think about a deal that's likely to fall short of complete ending of all nuclear anything in north korea? >> so the republicans -- and i don't want to get political here, but the republicans have been critical of the iran deal, saying we didn't get enough for the leverage that we had and we didn't include all of the other maligned activity on the part of the iranians, right? we have the same issue here. when president trump sits down with kim, is he going to talk
8:06 am
about the nuclear issue, or is he going to bring up all of the other bad activity that north koreans do, from cyber to assassinations of individuals outside north korea to human rights abuses. is he going to bring those in? >> to the beating death of otto warmbier. >> there are two other things that came out of the actual communique. one, they talked about unification, but no discussion of what that really looking like. and when you consider, think about south africa, all of the crimes that were committed by kim, how does that get worked out? the other thing, there was a discussion about potential bilateral talks or quad lateral talks between u.s. and china and south korea. it doesn't say anything about russia and japan. >> can president trump claim credit here that we've got ton this point so far? >> i think he does get credit. he's put unprecedented pressure
8:07 am
on north korea economically and militarily. at the same time north korea put pressure on us with their nuclear weapons ability but i would give the president credit. >> he brings up an important point. the south korean foreign minister is giving trump a lot of credit this morning, and it was trump who said the obama administration's policy of strategic patience was a failure and that it was time to actually begin these bilateral sorts of negotiations. that has brought us to this point. >> both north korea and south korea have a huge insensitive, right, to get to the kim/trump summit. south korea's incentive was they were deeply afraid a confrontation was going to break out and north korea wants to get there and turn their nuclear sanction into relief. >> and all of this carefully choreographed plan is almost going to make that meeting between trump and kim a lock.
8:08 am
>> who has the upper hand going into the meeting now? >> that's going to be a very interesting question. i do think if president trump doesn't hear what he wants to hear and he walks away, he's going to have to do it gracefully, and return to the status quo, rather than use force. >> the best outcome of a kim/trump summit is a set of goals and objectives for further talks by lower-level officials. the worst outcome is the talks between trump and kim break down and end in a not positive way. then where do you go after that? >> all right. michael morell, you have the last word. admiral, always good to see you. i think norah said it best. we have the best people at the table for this topic. what are you all, experts or something? >> thank you very much. >> decades of experience. bill cosby once considered a role model and called america's dad is now facing up to 30 years in prison this morning. the jury convicted the 80-year-old comedian.

pr h of those counts. cosby's lawyers say they will appeal. cbs reporter jodi kantor is an investigative reporter for "the new york times." she co-wrote the first story regarding sexual assault against harvey weinstein. she won a pulitzer prize which contributes to a worldwide reckoning of harassment and sexual assault. good morning. it's good to have you at the table. we wake up to find tom brokaw is now included in the me too movement. i don't think we take joy or pleasure to see anyone in this. i'm wondering what you are really feeling with somebody in the me too movement, what has happened? do you feel pride about it or ownership about it? i think it has changed the game, certainly in the bill cosby trial as well. >> i certainly don't feel ownership. so many have contributed, mostly the women who have come forward. i think what was emotional and significant about yesterday is
8:32 am
so many people thought this would never happen. so many women had given up hope. >> even gloria allred who was here, excuse me for interrupting, said she was surprised by the verdict. >> exactly, exactly. so when it finally came, it felt like, whoa, did something just change? was this a marker in the history of women being believed? and remember that this is such a long-running drama. some of these women came forward years and years ago. the sense of justice delayed and finally delivered was very profound. >> jodi, while the walls are falling and this is a total change, you still hear in the cosby trial and other place, people say well, why did they take so long? and saying a lot of things that were bricks in that original wall, how much has really changed? or do you still see parts of the culture or maybe outside of the lime light where things are not changing at all? >> well, you know, the tactics
8:33 am
that cosby's lawyers used against andrea constand, we saw that even in 2017 a woman can come forward as a con artist, someone just receiving money and at the same time we know the tactic has failed. i think the essential truth is it is still really, really, really hard for women to come forward and it's going to take us years to break down those barriers. >> and what's different about this trial, they allowed other witnesses to come in and testify, and cosby's attorneys attacked them like they attacked andrea constand. i mean really personal attacks, do you think they backfired? >> oh, they certainly backfired. we can see from the verdict. that question of numbers, i think, also gets to what we've all experienced in the last couple of months. which is, you know, at the paper, we often say it's the power, it's the pattern, it's the pattern. it's the pattern of weinstein, the profound reporting experience.
8:34 am
hearing these women from all over the world, different ages, different backgrounds, similar allegations and they had it for harvey weinstein. that's what happened in the cosby case as well. but it's also happening on a wider level because so many women who are not in the spot light also have these similar stories. so i think we're still asking the question is how can it be women in the country and all over the world profoundly experience these similar things and yet we never understood this pattern fully until now. >> we've talked about that. this is because it's systematic and it's pervasive. have we truly addressed the systemic and system attatic par this? >> yes. part of what was fascinating about the story about matt lauer, she used those allegations to drive home a bigger point about hr and to ask the question what would need to happen with human resources departments to make women
8:35 am
actually feel safe coming forward in the workplace. the first answer, of course, is there has to be a guarantee that there will be no retaliation. retaliation can almost be as bad as the original action because, you know, it's not the crime, it's the coverup. retaliation says something happened to you and i'm not going to listen. i'm going to use my power to silence you instead of to deal with the problem. >> we should note that we've reached out to nbc for comment and we've not yet heard back from them. what interests you? what's the question you're trying to answer right now with the work you're doing with respect to this? >> thanks for asking. megan twohey and i are working on a book. as norah said, what we're looking at here is systemic. this is actually not about individual perpetrators. what we see with these secret settlements that prevent victims from coming forward and warning other people, the hr failures, weak laws that fail to
8:36 am
adequately protect women. what we see is that this is really about -- fundamentally about a system that does not work for women that perpetuates the acts often. that keeps victims from being able to tell their stories or getting healed, so how do we actually change that whole system. >> it's also a different time now. i think in some cases many men just haven't gotten the memo. it's now here and it's not going to fly today. >> also we're not done with the old story. yesterday's shows not done were the cosby stories. we're not done with the nbc stories. we're still getting phone calls all the time. there's still a lot of processing to be done on what the current generation of women has faced in the workplace. >> jodi kantor, always good to have you here. thank you. >> thank you. tech entrepreneur says social media is failing women and she's offering a

8:54 am
this is a kpix5 morning update. >> good morning. it is 8:55 . there is a deadly mobile home fire that happened yesterday afternoon on the city's north side. one man was killed. his identity has not been released. officials have three designs to choose from with construction expected to start at the end of next year. republican activists are on the verge of turning 830,000 signatures for an initiative to appeal the tax increase. the increase is expected to raise nearly 5 1/2 billion dollars annually for road and bridge repairs and improvements to mass transit. stay with us. weather and traffic is in just a moment. lives on the line, you do have to surround yourself with experts. and for us the expert in gas and electric is pg&e. we run about 2,500/2,800 fire calls a year
8:55 am
and on almost every one of those calls pg&e is responding to that call as well. and so when we show up to a fire and pg&e shows up with us it makes a tremendous team during a moment of crisis. i rely on them, the firefighters in this department rely on them, and so we have to practice safety everyday. utilizing pg&e's talent and expertise in that area trains our firefighters on the gas or electric aspect of a fire and when we have an emergency situation we are going to be much more skilled and prepared to mitigate that emergency for all concerned. the things we do every single day that puts ourselves in harm's way, and to have a partner that is so skilled at what they do is indispensable, and i couldn't ask for a better partner.
