While she's here, I'll teach her some proper hose handling technique.
She can handle the nozzle while a couple of her friends feed her the hose.

I'm still confused that so many homes are located in an area that can suffer a humongous wildfire like this. Is this an unusual thing in this place or did the people know about this big risk and decide "fark it, we'll build here anyways"?

I'd BLEVE her high-pressure tank.
I'd douse her cockloft.
I'd surround and drown her fire triangle.
I'd polish her Maltese cross.
I'd inspect and refill her can.
I'd put her on my pumper company.
She could call me a whacker any time she liked.

There's still this myth that every competent firefighter is going to be able to effortlessly haul out a fat sweaty obese unconscious guy all on their lonesome... If you're in a situation where you're interior and have to haul someone out on your own, you've already screwed up cause you've lost the other member(s) of your team. Trying to do this while bunkered up, on SCBA, in a hostile environment is just unrealistic.

For what it's worth, a third of my department is female, and I'd go in with them, and have gone in with them, in a heartbeat. I'd rather be with them than the 45 year old overweight guy with a heart condition that can deadlift a metric ton.

Chick above is also wildland, not structural from the looks of it, so moot point anyways...

Some of both. While these towns are in more wildfire prone areas, climate change has really upped the ante. In the west right now, the snow melt comes earlier and accumulation doesn't start until later, so the snowpack is on the ground less time, and there's a longer heat season, which dries out the underbrush to a greater extent then in the past. That makes the fires easier to start and results in a longer season where they have a potential to start.

So, while building in these areas might have been a risk 20 years ago, the wildfires were smaller and the season wasn't as long as it is now.

And the best part? There's no hope of reversing it any time soon.

The part that will make you want to drink? "Fiscally responsible" state governments have been cutting way back on fire fighting and prevention budgets.

\Sleep well, American west.

She's not ugly, but certainly not blazing hot either. Clocks in at a 6 or 7, though the picture is pretty worthless. I suppose she could be a well disguised 8, but probably not.

Nevertheless, you were justified in not trusting the headline. These days subbies just call everything and anything with a vagina "hot" for greens. This is more of the same.

I know a handful of women who are wildland firefighters and they don't look much more muscular than the woman from TFA. OTOH, they can build fireline in circles around the average structural ff all day...in 100F weather...on a 75% slope.

That shirt she has on reminds me of back in my helpdesk days. We had a user whose last name was Estes. His first name was Tim. Every time he called, whether I needed it or not I asked him for his username. He would get all pissed off and say that I knew it. I would say, "Come on Tim, what is it? I can't remember it." He would never give it to me.

Actually was reading a different article and they think it may be arson, which of course with so much dry wood and near populated area wouldn't take long to burn a bunch of houses down.

The rookie firefighter sprang into action while home and seeing flames spread from house to house in her Estes Park neighborhood, incinerating trees in its wake. She raced around with her garden hose, shouting for neighbors to get out of their houses and turn their hoses on

How can she be a fire fighter and NOT realize that this part is immensly stupid? You CANNOT fight a wildfire with a garden hose. If your home is going to be toast, with fire all around it, a garden hose will NOT help you.

The majority of firefighters in the US could not do that. Most are volunteer. Many volunteer departments also do medical and have train local nurses as firefighters mostly so they can help with medical calls or drive tankers.
TFA didn't say what department she was in. I'm sure smokejumpers have much more stringent requirements.
Also, there's a lot of fatasses that weigh much more than 200lbs these days.

Also the whole "NEVER LET ANYTHING BURN EVER" mentality kind of came back and bit us. There are cyclic events in nature that keep everything in balance. Like the flooding of the Nile kept the land fertile, so when you dam it up and stop that the land becomes a bit more useless.

simrobert2001: The rookie firefighter sprang into action while home and seeing flames spread from house to house in her Estes Park neighborhood, incinerating trees in its wake. She raced around with her garden hose, shouting for neighbors to get out of their houses and turn their hoses on

How can she be a fire fighter and NOT realize that this part is immensly stupid? You CANNOT fight a wildfire with a garden hose. If your home is going to be toast, with fire all around it, a garden hose will NOT help you.


A common tactic during wilfdires is to soak your house as well as you can, in an attempt to keep flying embers from spreading the fire to your house. Not saying its a good idea, but I dont think they were trying to put out the wildfire, so much as prevent their houses from catching.

... and not to be sexist, but my wife is actually a volunteer firefighter and in my experience they put the women in charge of things like "securing the scene" and directing traffic a lot more than they actually let them put the wet stuff on the red stuff, or go dragging people out of houses.

I'd like to thank todays subbys. Their "cute" 30 something woman bangs a 15 old old above and the "blazing hot" fire fighter stories do not disappoint.

All the rest of you pricks should take notice and learn.

Larmer: robohobo: Soooo...there aren't any physical requirements to be a firefighter anymore? Cause I doubt this broad is strong enough to lift a 200 pound guy and carry him to safety.

There's still this myth that every competent firefighter is going to be able to effortlessly haul out a fat sweaty obese unconscious guy all on their lonesome... If you're in a situation where you're interior and have to haul someone out on your own, you've already screwed up cause you've lost the other member(s) of your team. Trying to do this while bunkered up, on SCBA, in a hostile environment is just unrealistic.

For what it's worth, a third of my department is female, and I'd go in with them, and have gone in with them, in a heartbeat. I'd rather be with them than the 45 year old overweight guy with a heart condition that can deadlift a metric ton.

Chick above is also wildland, not structural from the looks of it, so moot point anyways...


The last grab I made was a little old lady who couldn't have weighed more than 120. It took everything my partner and I had to drag her out. It was a hot one and we were pinned to the floor. I can't see very many women being particularly helpful with that event.

I've worked with women before, and none of them is at the bottom of the list of who I'd like to work with. There are far too many fat, useless men at the bottom. But none of them is right at the top, either. The best woman I've worked with is nowhere near the best man in any respect: strength, speed, instinct or daring.

As for working with a "team," not everyone has that luxury. I have routinely been by myself in fires, either because I started off alone or because we intentionally split up. It's the life you lead in the land of 3-man pumpers and 2-man trucks. It isn't safe, it isn't accepted practice for most of the service, but I could be doing my job 100% right and need to rescue a 250 pounder by myself.

Mimic_Octopus: how the fark is a skinny little 18 y/o chick strong enough to be a fire fighter ? are they desperate ? she couldnt haul shiat up stairs on a clear day let alone in a cloud of smoke...

NWCG Wildfire firefighters (Type II FFs) have different physical requirements more aimed at getting the fark outta the way as fast as possible and being able to endure long distance hiking (i.e. being able to haul arse up and over the mountain when told to). They aren't so much for saving lives directly.

The main one is being able to walk 3 miles in 45 minutes with a 45 lb pack. (not run, they watch and will disqualify you...has to do with a foot always being on the ground) It's harder than you think, especially if you have a short inseam like myself. I was in really good shape when I was first certified and I believe it still took me almost 35 minutes.

You have other qualifications like being able to deploy and get inside an emergency personal fireshelter within a certain amount of time.

Being deployed on a fireteam (especially the national call teams, like mine) is no joke. AT LEAST two weeks of "camping" in the hot-arse-fiery woods....lots and lots of hiking and maual labor every day 12-16 hours often.

skinink: I'm still confused that so many homes are located in an area that can suffer a humongous wildfire like this. Is this an unusual thing in this place or did the people know about this big risk and decide "fark it, we'll build here anyways"?



tetsoushima: Hydra: Are you confused as to why so many people live in New Orleans (which is one huge floodplain)?

Yes, in fact I am.




So neither of you will live in places with lots of trees or grass or brush...and tetsoushima has added valley bottoms to the list of unlivables....

I guess neither of you have earthquakes, tornadoes, tsunamis or hurricanes to worry about either?

Looks like we outta all move in with you guys...lest we get "disastered"

Shiat, you can't live anywhere within a few thousand miles of Wyoming because of the Yellowstone Caldera Supervolcano.

ChubbyTiger: I would make a comment online, alluding to having coitus with this woman; said comment would contain a pun, or play on words, which alludes to her chosen occupation as a member of a fire brigade. I would further describe any repeated thrusting and eventual ejaculation resulting from said coitus in a simile that compares my penis to a fire house and my ejaculate to a fire retardant liquid used to extinguish or cool some portion of her anatomy which is, for the purposes of the simile, hot or aflame in some manner.

I live in New England. We aren't really prone to earthquakes or extreme weather besides heavy snow. While snow is costly in terms of productivity, rarely does it completely level entire neighborhoods. Ocassionally we'll get a hurricane blowing through, but they are usually just heavy rain rather than 120 mph winds. This is only a problem for people who live in (the relatively small) flood prone areas. Disasters aren't a zero-sum kind of equation, which is why there are so many insurance companies headquartered in this region.

Mmm.. if you're talking property insurance, most of them are headquartered in this region because insurance here started not long after industry and manufacturing did. And this is where the bulk of the industry and manufacturing was, probably because it was settled first and had lots of port cities.

Yes, but if this area was prone to disaster the insurance company would either:
A) relocate.
B) retrofit.

Ok, but it's still just a matter of happenstance. All the major insurers have offices all over the world these days. Corporate headquarters of major companies tend to stay put more because it's difficult to relocate all your top tier employees more than any other reason, I think.
