This is why I have so much respect for Brandon Spry. He is a leader and so smart and thinks of all his crew! This is why he is such a great husband, and father!! This is just a small example of what our fire departments go tough. They dont tell you what really goes on. If you ever come onto a spot....hopefully your not using a shovel. When you are looking out for your team. I'm praying everyone is ok. Such respect for the knowledge our fire fighters have. They just do things that most people could never imagine. Yes, the have fun, but these people will always be my friends and true respect.
Please stop showing this video. It’s terribly triggering for ffs. At the very least put a disclaimer on it. Those are people’s loved ones.
Prayers for all. These are the ones who put their lives on the line every shift with stuff like this! They respect it but think don't hesitate doing what needs to be done. God bless these first responders.
God..please watch over these Firefighters involved in this horrific fire in LA and watch over Firefighters every where. Bless them and keep them safe ❤🌹
This is terrifying. Three times in my life I have evacuated homes under fire threat. You saved us each time. Thank you for running *toward* the danger.
It looks worse then it actually is. It's terrible but these guys train for these scenarios and are equipped with proper PPE to protect them
Just terrifying to watch. My whole body went cold watching the cluster of guys trying to decend the ladder..
My nephew is an Oakland Firefighter and I worry about him and all of you! Be safe 🙏🙏🙏🙏
I cried watching this. Thank you firefighters! ❤️
Looked like a freaking blow torch. Flammable gas or liquid illegally stored?
Wow, that’s the dangers they deal with every day !!
Thank you for sharing this makes me appreciate every day
Prayers to our fellow firefighters from PA to LA ! Praying for healing ...
Not liking this at all. Be safe
Omg those brave dear firefighters I pray they are ok.
Prayer for all that are fighting this fire. May god keep a close watch over them all
I hope they were all ok. That was incredible!
My thoughts are with these incredible Firefighters
Omgosh thats terrifying....hoping they are all ok ❤
This is sickening to see these people going through. What the hell cause a fire like that?
Sadly this is part of the job we never know how our day will fall but we must always be aware of the situation that we could encounter never let the guard down if does not feel right let the team know the condition and move. Luckily A member felt or saw the conditions changing and call a may. Day. Sadly a few got caught and our prayers are with all
Wishing those heroes 🦸♀️ best care ever and full recovery in Jesus name. 🙏
Wishing those heroes the very best of care and full recovery
I think this is something that can be planned for and prepared for starting now. Including plans for an outbreak in a staging area/camp. I am also concerned about an immediate disaster such as an earthquake. Amtrak derailment, pipeline explosion..etc etc. That would create an MCI with immediate concerns that can not be prepared for or screened for. We are in for a challenging time for sure.
