Forest Service gets to the heart of wildland firefighters
It takes a certain type of person to fight wildfires. It’s not what they look like. Or sound like. It’s not their heritage or their culture. It’s their heart. A seven-minute U.S. Forest Service recruitment video, “The Heart of a Firefighter,” takes viewers as close to being as firefighter as possible through a small screen.
The video opens with the crackling sound of fire then, slowly, the sound of a heartbeat intermixes with sounds of thunder, firefighters talking to each other over radios and, increasingly, the sound of tribal vocals and drumming mixed with the electronic music created by A Tribe Called Red. Intermixed are wildland firefighters describing their jobs and their emotional connection to the work that they do.
Puff and Fluff the owls return home
Puff and Fluff, the baby owls that Forest Service firefighters saved during the Carstens Fire in June 2013, are finally home. Terri Williams of the Fresno Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation Servicereleased the Western Screech-Owls on July 24 near where they were found the month before in a downed tree in the Sierra National Forest.
Chips the Baby Bobcat
During the Chips Fire on the Plumas National Forest, a baby bobcat was orphaned. While the Forest Service restored the forest, the bobcat, then known as Chips, recovered at a wild animal rehabilitation facility. Recently, Chips was returned to the wild.
