    • I am studying abroad in Australia in 2 weeks and while I’m there I’m gonna take the opportunity to help in any possible way I can. I realize I won’t be doing much since I’m not a licensed volunteer firefighter but anything I can do while I’m there I’d be willing.

    • So its been explained to me that fire fighters really only work once a year, that's during the Cali fires, also there's such a mass in fire fighters that often it doesn't cause problems to send them to other countries, from a pilot perspective it's just more flight time and less work, pilots only ..
