Firefighter. A firefighter adjusts his radio during operations to manage a forest fire. This firefighter is part of an elite US crew 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 remove combustible material from areas of land using hand tools and controlled fires. Fire suppression methods from the air include releasing water or fire retardant, and with deliberate lighting of controlled fires. Photographed in 2000 in Wyoming, USA.
