Wildland Firefighting, 1969

When the "incident commander" was simply called a "fire boss" and infra-red scanning was in its infancy. But a pulaski is still a pulaski.

A few items that flashed by in the video reminded me of Dad. This video would have been made not long before he retired from the Forest Service, getting out early because he could add his WW2 military service to his career years—and, stuck in an office, the job was not as fun for him as it had been in earlier years.
