Firefighter

There is a great old forest on fire.

Crowning in the trees, the destruction is swift.

Animals racing to safety, some burning in the wake of the fire.

The crew works hard to put the thing out.

The straw boss directs the water bombers with his handset.

He makes sure the crew is out of harms way.

12 hour days, three square meals, 8 hours sleep, very little down time.

Choppers flying them from ‘a to b’.

Making sure the camp is okay.

Camp cook and bottle washer does her daily chores and watches camp while the firefighters dance.

Protecting the forest products and every thing that lives there by extension.

3 weeks in, one week out, rest time for the crew.

If people only new.
