11. I use to be a Fire Camp Slug

The one making the briefing and other “pretty” maps. Now retired, though living in the forest. The thought of fire season has pre-occupied me and my mind goes to fire crews in close quarters and how in the heck can they run a fire camp successfully? Social Distancing? How do you do that in an engine or crew bus or even cutting line? And then the overhead are generally older, though maybe not many over 60, unless like so many of my fellow retirees who have gone back as contractors, in camp. It’s a mess. The best I’ve seen out of DOI was a dusted off interagency plan to deal with the last pandemic...over 10 years old abd none of that applies when you have asymptomatic carriers. AZ and NM are in their fire season now...makes me wonder what they have done.
