Fire & smoke

So for most of us, going to work means getting dressed, making a lunch and perhaps taking a backpack or brief case. In the case of a Smokejumpers, it’s a little more complicated.

Now I’ll be the first to say, sometimes we need to let mother nature take her course but I also think that sometimes they are needed. Unfortunately this article isn’t available online unless you have a subscription but it’s a great read. The article is entitled “What to Take Along to Get a Jump on Forest Fires” by Hilary Potkewitz over at the Wall Street Journal.

Or you could go to a public library like I did. Anyway, it’s a great read. For a little more information on what they do, visit the U.S. Forest Service website.
