To Hotshot Mom
I too was a hotshot mom for years, so I understand your worries. if your “shot” calls on a regular basis, you are lucky – too often they have no access to a telepone if in the western states on large fires.
To those of you who live in the east or mid-west – it’s a whole different world out here. many acres, no roads, no cell sites, large fire complexes have many crews at any given time. if your guy/gal is on engine detail, not so much worry – they don’t deploy engines off road.
To all: Read the wildlandfire links, especially the NIFC daily sit reports. Although it doesnt’ give you particulars about which crew is where, it does give you a good overview of what is burning & where. and, BTW, there is another website with additional media clips – wildfire news.com. Whoever jokingly commented about the family critters loving the smell of those smelly clothes – it’s a party for them! – give em that treat.
To the lurkers: jump in! you may have a piece of the puzzle some who come here are looking for!
