me as an incident commander

From Schmidt & Weston blog

I didn't take this photo because that's me in the yellow with the blue helmet. I believe someone named Tebby took it. Somehow I ended up in charge of putting out this fire for a while. That position used to be called Fire Boss, but for several years now the title is Incident Commander.

I still can't decide which sounds better; to be the boss of fire or the commander of an incident.


  1. Write in Vote: Commander of Awesome Flaming Incidents. And we can just call you Boss.

  2. Wow.

    Thanks Will.

    Almost makes me want to return to the beast that is Alberta Forestry.



Thank you for visiting. I live in Vancouver now, but I've lived in other places too. I take photos and make short films about things and people. Please comment and be argumentative. It amuses me.
