    Scary picture Steve.

    In those situations Bermy, whilst dealing with wildfires, what would you typically be doing?

    I mean, holding hoses or evacuation or directing planes?
    Iím condescending, that means I talk down to people.

    Well it depends Mick, if you get called right at the beginning, usually a pager alert after a 000 call in our area, it can be everything from hopping out and getting wet stuff on hot stuff, right through to calling for more resources and helping direct them.
    It also depends on your rank and skill set and the size of the incident, single brigade, multi brigade.
    On big campaign fires where Incident Management is set up, you report in and are assigned a sector and work on the plan for that sector under a sector commander. We did control of backburns that had been authorized and set, we did structure protection... moving flammable stuff, setting perimeters, waiting, waiting, we did blacking out of hotspots, aka dragging lots of hoses for hrs in end.
    Keep smiling, they will wonder what you're up to...
