Wildland Firefighting Video

Some Wyoming firefighters made this video to give a sense of their work. It's the real deal.

Me, I own a hardhat and a pulaski, but I never did the real paid firefighting. When I was a little kid, they wore jeans and T-shirts, and nobody had a radio.

It's addictive work for the people who do it. Think of walking up on a fire when you can't see it -- but you can hear it. (Via The Goat.)
