jumpers Smokejumpers - Flying into Forest Fires
The bravery of firefighters left a deep impression on people.The courage needed to rush into the raging fire was enormous.The parachutists jumped off the plane and parachuted into remote areas to fight wild fires, making the gut more tough.
They were asked to fight the fire at an early stage where roads and trails barely existed and could not get into the truck.The traditional smoke jumper motto of "speed, range, payload" represents their flexibility when performing tasks across multiple bases across the continent.For the first time in 1934, the idea of putting individuals into the forest to put out fires.
Further experiments were conducted five years later.The first official program was launched in 1940 at camps in Washington and Montana.For decades, people have been arguing which camp is the real origin of the airborne program.
In July 1940, in a fire in the national forest of Nez Perce, two firefighters from each base made their first official jump.The project later became a permanent member of the US Forest administration.They deployed from seven bases in four states in the western United States.
Due to the limitations of the equipment, smokers must be in good health and within the limits of height and weight.They must also be familiar with the tools they will use when fighting in the forest.Potential parachuters and those taking the refresher course are trained in many procedures.
They include ways to leave the plane in flight, manipulate parachutes, hit treesRemoval and removal technology and recycling of materials and equipment.Most of this training was carried out in a custom designed simulation from a rig suspended by a parachute.Some training bases also have virtual reality training systems.
This allows trainees to gain ground experience without the inherent risk of a real fire.Once the training is completed, a wearer may be self-employedSupply and equipment fell into the area for two days.OFF-Not every season is threatened by wild fires.
In the months of fire and cold, the wearer is not just doing nothing.Their duties include other activities of forest services, such as trail maintenance, pile brushing and maintenance of other facilities.Their professional training enables them to serve as consultants and trainers in other services and projects across the country.
As a representative of their organization and USFS, the performance of an airborne on these other tasks is closely watched as much as their fire duties.Due to the apparent risk of injury and death, many questioned the value of continuing to implement the plan.In addition to other fire protection technologies, there are benefits to this project.
The airborne devices used by these aircraft have a much longer range than the helicopters used to drain water.The jumper is also able to attack the fire before it becomes large enough to guarantee the cost of water or chemicals falling in the forest.Although there is a smoker who can do it all, they are an effective way to put out the fire before and after the start of the fire.
