4. Maybe I'm behind the times, or maybe it is different in the east...

 

It was 30 years ago for me. We called them "Jump drills" the crew needed to be at the airfield in two hours with full kit.

Line spacing sounds about the same, between 10-20 ft. spacing depending on terrain and situation.

It's the fire camp, not the line, that has me worried. I've been in camps with 1500 fire-fighters, and another 1000 prisoners doing mop-up, in hideous unsanitary conditions.

In any case, thank you for what you do, and stay safe as well.
