Response to SinisterPants (Original post)

3. I'm a firefighter

I'm a firefighter and a member of my states Forestry crew. I take the Pack out test every year that allows me to respond out of state.

Maybe you do things differently out there but here on the east coast we don't fight wildfires shoulder to shoulder. When I work a line I'm 15-20 feet away from any other individual. We can carry extra PPE and don it if necessary but so far it hasn't been a problem.

Our season started with a bang and much earlier than usual but has turned into a bust. Stay safe out there.
