On a typical day there is so much to do and learn from this company. You learn about the changes in weather and the RN changes. What signs to look for in fire weather. There are all types of different job titles in this work area. It is under excelllent supervison by overhead and Technicans.The people you meet from all over the states is an awesome experience because you learn about different terrains and how people do things differently. Some of the hardest things about this job is that your feet and the safety of others is your number one priority. If you do not take care of your feet you are unable to complete your task. The safety of yourself and those are around you is important, there is no greater fault then to lose a co-worker or yourself because safety measures were not taken. After all these precautions are taken and everything gets accomplished as schedule. There is no greater feeling then being able to say that you've done your job and got a fire under control and no civilians were hurt in the process and that fear of innocent lives being in danger is no longer a threat.
