Firefighters. Firefighters constructing a firebreak. These firefighters are part of an elite crew of US firefighters known as 'hotshots'. They respond to fires rapidly and employ a variety of ground and air techniques to manage forest fires. Firefighters on the ground carry hand tools such as shovels and pulaski axes to clear areas of land, known as firebreaks, in an attempt to halt the spread of the fire. Photographed in 1998 at Salmon, Idaho, USA.
