Wildfire in New Mexico

Dylan is in New Mexico, on assignment for the U.S. Forest Service. He is part of a Type 2 intial attack crew sent from Sandpoint. He has been working very hard in hot weather; protecting homes threatened by wildfires. We are so proud of him!

Both of the last two fires he has put out have been human caused. They have resulted in evacuations, roadblocks, public transportation cancellations and air quality warnings. This Fourth of July, while you are enjoying your fireworks and campfires, please remember that "Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires".

(This picture was taken in Idaho a few summers back. Great shot, Connie. Thank you.).
