Its fire season and there are airtankers all over the western United States working long hard shifts to help stop the wildfires. Shout out to all my fire family! Take a deep breath for me and remember two more chains! . . #twomorechains #TBT #neptuneaviation #airtankers #tankerbase #viewsfromwork #wildfire #wildfires #wildlandfirefighter #coeurdalene #idahosunset #idaho #idahoexplored #wildlandfirefighterfoundation #crushitdaily #sunuptosundown #workingclass #fire #firefighter #dispatcher #smokejumper #helitack #helirappellers #hotshotfirefighters
At 12:50 p.m. on Thursday South Metro Firefighters responded to an accident involving a trenching tractor in a neighborhood under construction at 15895 E. Otero Avenue. The workers called 911 and reported that they struck a natural gas line underground, which burst into flames. When Firefighters arrived they found the tractor fully engulfed and a large volume of fire venting from the pressurized natural gas. Thankfully the operator of the trencher safely evacuated and no one was injured. Firefighters used water streams to protect the nearby fence and building from radiant heat until Xcel Energy arrived and shut off the gas. As a precaution, Tower 35 also laddered the roof of the closest building to monitor heat conditions. No structures were damaged but the tractor was destroyed. - - - #smfr #southmetrofirerescue #explosion #flames #fire #naturalgasfire #naturalgas #accident #firefighter #firefighters #firefighting #exposureprotection #viewsfromwork
Capturing some video for Twitter at this trencher vs. natural gas line that resulted in fire today. Being where the story is happening, capturing the scene and sharing that visual with accurate information quickly is the key to success for the modern PIO. Drive the narrative or someone else will. - - - #firepio #piolife #socialmedia #breakingnewscoverage #publicinformation #viewsfromwork #firescene #firebytrade #cairnsfirehelmet #bostonbend #superdicey #violentlittlemachineshop #everyonecomeshome

In 3 short weeks I start NPS seasonal law enforcement academy. Unfortunately that means I'll be away from the park for the next 4 months... I'm excited for lifes next adventure but man am I going to miss these views... 💜 One of my favorite things about BISO is the overlooks. This one is up above Twin Arches. If this isn't Gods country. Then I don't know what is y'all. See ya in November Tennessee... 💜 #Tennessee #Home #Love #BigSouthForkNRRA #TwinArches #AdventureTennessee #ViewsFromWork #LifeChanges #FindYourPark #NPS

PRIME DAY FIRE! The new KNGs don't support the Amazon app, so I lost out on a 6qt Instant Pot. #primeday #wildlandfire #viewsfromwork #callingchoppers #colorado #amazonprime #dangit #iwantedthatinstantpot

I think it might rain #viewsfromwork
Our view from camp last night when the #lakechristinefire hit the ridge and made a big push.
Had another good day here in SW Oregon! I got to IA and IC my first fairly complex wildland fire. Multiple different resources puts it in the ICT4 classification... On the Roberts Mountain Fire I had: 5 Engines (2 ODF + 2 Rural/Metro FD + 1 Contract Engine), (1) 20-man Hand Crew, a 3000 gallon Water Tender, (1) Faller, & (1) Type-2 Helicopter overhead (to do water drops / bucket work). @3ythanharley was my Air-to-Ground for majority of the two fuel cycles we got outta 4MM (the Heli). We were able to contain it to 4.497 Acres. Pretty damn happy with that. Excellent work by all crews working on scene (and overhead) to make that possible. #ICT4 #initialattack #LCES #wildlandfirefighting #wildlandfirefighter #incidentcommand #retardantline #viewsfromwork #20manhandcrew #faller #droppingsnags #type2helicopter #waterdrops #bucketwork #ruralmetrofire #oregondepartmentofforestry #southwestoregon #watertender #agooddayatwork
The moment when you hear a large plane heading your direction and you just can’t run away fast enough 🤦🏻‍♀️ . . . . . . . . #WildlandFirefighter #FireSeason2018 #Fire #FireFighter #Hotshots #Work #California #NorthWest #Lightning #Forest #FemaleFirefighter #AirAttack #ViewsFromWork #HeroJuice #Painted #Paint #Retardant #Stihl

Change of scenery today - lightning holdover in heavy timber south of Cedar Breaks National Monument. #bambibucket #MokiHelitack #mbrhelicopters
My crew on the Ferguson Fire. Going over the IAP (Incident Action Plan) for our shift on the fire. We ended up getting assigned to the night shift. Which is nice considering during the day the temps are hot hot!!! #firecrew #fireseason2018 #wildfire #fergusonfire #usfs #type2ia #handcrew #firecamp #wildlandfirefighters #viewsfromwork
Some long nights on the dollar ridge fire with super active fire behavior #viewsfromwork #wildlandfire #fireseason2018 #dirtyhandscleanmoney
Burning the rope—a tradition to celebrate your first rappel fire. Congrats to these two rookies for getting it done.
All work, all play. #cowboyjunkies #viewsfromwork

Good times in Klamath for a lightning move up. Now off to the Garner fire with @neumanndillon #viewsfromwork
Cuando el río suena... 💦💦💦
So it’s pretty intimidating seeing a big ol bird like this Billings Chinook up close. I don’t know how ya’ll #Helitack peeps do it, being waaay more up close and personal with these things, but props to you! But I have to say it was pretty cool watching it take off, it’s not everyday you get to see such a big helicopter in action. #ViewsFromWork #ElkoNevada #Summer18 #WildlandFire Also a fun fact one of this company’s Chinooks was also used in the Suicide Squad film. So that was pretty cool too!
Rolling up to the Red Road Fire. It was a few hundred acres when we showed up and 4000+ by the morning. . . . #wildlandfire #wildlandfirefighting #wildlandfirefighters #wildlandfirephotos #wildfire #forestservice #fireseason2018 #viewsfromwork #olympus #sigmaphoto
The crew checking out the Grand Canyon on the last roll. Lucky I get to go to sweet places like this for work #viewsfromwork #tuweep #grandcanyonnationalpark
#MokiHelitack stomped out a ponderosa single tree fire ⚡🌲🔥 near the Cottonwood Canyon Wilderness, south of Zion today. Sweet LZ 50 yards from the fire and a great place to hang out for a few hours! #mbrhelicopters #mountainbladerunner
A few days ago we flew to this fire then landed in a meadow by a resort in the national forest. We were standing around waiting for something and I trekked over to the main building to use an actual toilet 😍. On my way back a lovely wino lady approached me and we talked about life and where the fire was. She offered me a swig off her bottle, I politely declined (no drinking on the clock!) and we chatted. I said mokelumne wilderness a couple times and pointed she repeated tuolumne each time and something something Yosemite. I smiled and finally said yes when she said a mash-up of both and said tomkulome. I think I would like to see this Tomkulome wilderness, you can find me and my summer spirit animal lady friend there. Have some for me pretty lady 🍷 #myjobisfun 😍 #viewsfromwork #spiritanimal
