Author(s): Ben McLane
Year Published: 2020
Description:

As wildfire seasons have expanded in duration and intensity, the effort and dedication required of wildland firefighters have increased (Withen 2015). Firefighters now work from April, when fuels first become available for burning, until well into the winter months of December and January. As fire seasons have grown into “fire years,” maintaining firefighter health and well-being has become a rising concern.
