Fascinating overview of how firefighters fight wildfires

Yeah. Used to work for a fire service that covered urban and rural parts of my state (rural being about 75 per cent of that state - that’s a guess, the vast majority of the area anyway) and it is indeed interesting how they go about combatting bush/wildfires. In fact, people from that service often lend a hand in other countries needing help with fires - America and Greece being the most recent. We have a lot to thank firies for!


And how they fight back!


You can appreciate their work, but whatever you do, don’t call them heroes. Heros hate that shit.

“It’s a crummy commercial?”

Joking aside, that was fascinating.
