Brian's Firefighting Training

Brian went down to Texas last month for some firefighting training with Flint Hills. We just got access to some of the photos. It was very hot for the Alaska guys, especially with all their gear on. Here are some of the best shots. At the beginning of the day, everyone was rested and ready to go. Hoses ready!
One night was devoted to night firefighting...important training when living in Alaska.
Here are the guys pushing back the flames...
Hot, smoky work.
A great shot of the flames.
Yup, that's Brian waiting for the okay to head on in!

By the time the end of the trip came around, everyone was starting to drag. Too much fire and heat. Ready to head back home to cooler temperatures and snow.
