Chris Young came to the Grangeville Idaho Smoke Jumper Base 15 years ago, back then he was pretty lonely.Young had only one partner who was also a practicing smoke jumper, basically firefighters with wings.Today more than 30 people work at the base. All of them are experienced firefighters who have to master parachute jumping for the job.We can get there quick because we fly, and we’ll fly it in a straight line to get to that fire, and it’s typically in remote areas.Be a smoke jumper, it is at least five weeks at the minimum training that we will run that rookie through.When the alarm sound goes off, smoke jumpers have three minutes to get dressed.Putting on all the gear is complicated, so these men always work in pairs.
15年前,克里斯·杨来到了爱达荷州格兰杰维尔烟雾跳伞基地,当时他是孤独的。杨只有一个伙伴,也是练习烟雾跳投的伙伴,他们基本上就是带翅膀的消防队员。如今超过30人在基地工作。他们都是经验丰富的跳伞灭火员,必须掌握降落伞技能才能胜任工作。我们可以快速到达那里,因为我们是飞过去的,我们以直线飞行到达起火处,起火的地方通常是偏远地区。成为一名跳伞灭火员,至少需要五周时间训练才能过渡出新手阶段。当警报声响起时,跳伞灭火员有三分钟时间穿衣服。穿上所有装备很复杂,所以这些男人总是成对工作。
So we make right here in in this parachute loft. A lot of this equipment is made right here, you can’t buy it at the store.It’s made out of Kevlar. The reason for that is puncher resistant, if he were to lay into an into a tree, he wouldn’t get a large branch penetrating that suit. It’s got a hard shell on the inside.Their shoes are extra durable, a special equipment bag holds water, gloves, hardhat, fire shelter and other personal belongings.An extra parachute is always at hand.It’s it’s uncomfortable. it’s tight. it’s hot. But I love it, and it gets me excited because I know what comes next is a fun part.The fun part is getting the load up in the plane, getting look at the fire from the air, sighs it up, and then you get to jump out and go take care of business.Riley has been a smokejumper for under a year, so far he’s battled five fires.And your heart starts beating before you even take off, and then you’re in the air and becomes real,and you can see down on the ground where you’re supposed to land and the spotter gives you the briefing,and your training just kicks in, you get in the door like you’re supposed to.
我们在这个跳伞阁楼里完成这些。很多这样的设备都是在这儿制成的,你在商店买不到。它由聚醯胺纤维制成。原因是这样耐磨。如果降落到一棵树上,不会因为一根大的树枝而穿破装备。内部有一个坚硬的壳。他们的鞋子非常耐用,他们还有特殊的可装水的设备袋、手套、安全帽、防火棚和其他个人物品。他们总是带上额外的降落伞。这是不舒服。它很紧、很热。但我喜欢它,它让我兴奋,因为我知道接下来的部分很有趣。有趣的部分是在飞机上穿戴好装备、从空中注视火势、深呼一口气,然后跳下去完成工作。Riley成为一个跳伞运动员不到一年,到目前为止,他已经与五场大火作战。在你起飞之前,心脏开始怦怦跳,然后你到空中,一切都变得真实起来,你可以看到你应该着陆的地面,观察员给你指示,你的训练开始起作用了,你会进入大门,正如你该做的那样一样。
Smoke jumpers land at a safe distance from the heart of the wildfire.Once on the ground, they wait for the instrument kits to be dropped, inside a special axe called pulaski and a handsaw.After the fire is extinguished, they walk to where they can be picked up by special transport.At times, it’s kilometers away.Smoke jumpers high season starts in May and ends in September.Most of them spend late fall, winter and early spring working at regular fire stations until a heat wave comes and they are needed again with their pulaski, handsaw and bravery.
跳伞灭火员降落在远离野火中心的安全距离。一旦到了地面,他们会等待仪器装备扔下来,其中有一个叫做锹背单刃手斧的特殊斧头和一个手锯。大火熄灭后,他们步行到可以通过特殊交通工具接载的地方。有时,这个地方在几公里之外。跳伞灭火员的旺季从五月开始,到九月结束。深秋、冬季和早春,大多数跳伞灭火员都在常规消防站工作,直到热浪来临,就到了派他们上战场的时候,还需要的是锹背单刃手斧和手锯和他们的勇敢。
