Jumping into the Belly of the Beast

ravenslightRavenslight on 12/05/2006

Trivia Quiz Smokejumpers routinely jump into the belly of the beast. Smokejumping, is a relatively new method of firefighting. It is a dangerous way to make a living, but then, it is far more than a living; it is a way of life for most of these firefighters. These brave souls take the risk of parachuting, toss in a little remoteness, uncontrolled fire, and nearly impossible ground access and then do what firefighters do everyday across this world, fight fires. They have to jump with all of the equipment they will need. These firemen may be in the bush for up to a week; access for rescue and emergency medical services are limited at best. Smokejumpers try to contain fires before they become raging beasts. The idea is to get to small, new fires, before they gather too much momentum and supresses them, but it doesn't always work. This is a quiz that is a tribute to all smokejumpers and the pilots who get them where they are going. I have used several resources:, BLM website,, Forest Service website and a local pilot who has not flown with the smokejumpers per se, but worked in support, dropping slurry.
