My daughter's boyfriend is on a hot shot crew working this fire...

He got to go to sleep at 2am, laying on top of his sleeping bag, in the dirt. Then they woke him up at 7am to get back to work.

Crazy stuff!

What HS crew is he on? Black Mesa? There’s a few out there now with more on the way. Looks like the fire is blowing up at 34k acres in a couple of days.

Hot Shots do some amazing work and work there asses off. Fire is still in the infancy so they’ll be working long hours until resources come.

Very cool! We're waiting to get called out right now. What shot crew is he on? They rack up a LOT of overtime through the season!

Bonneville Hot Shots...


Apparently he's the youngest guy on the team. He stared 3 years ago, and he's like 20 or 21?

He wants to become a smoke jumper next...

That’s how my Brother In Law started was on a Hot Shot Crew at 20 years old. He’s now at LA City enjoying that he knows what his schedule will be or not having to worry about being forced lol

The HS are the real deal.

CA requires some dedicated people. I’m happy blue collar guys earn so much. For the rest of the nation...the same people earn 36k a year.

Sounds like a smart kid and will be successful in his career.

He’ll have additional support soon.

Four fires in just that one section of AZ right now?? Those damn desert dwellers are ruining all the clean air!

LoL
