Forest and Wildland Firefighting - for Nature and Environment!

My full time main focus in the fire service was the forest and wildland firefighting especially in European states (among others in France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Czech Republic) as well as in the United States of America (among others in the US federal states California, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Washington).
For many years I got the opportunity to learn from the wildland firefighters and to take part to her operations for nature and environment protection.

Also here an extensive picture archive offers opportunity to "Optical Memories" of this instructive and exciting time.
