No shit: California has elite firefighters called “smokejumpers”


California, USA, has firefighters that jump off of helicopters and fight the fire directly in the wilderness. They are called “smokejumpers” and are highly trained. I never knew that California has such firefighters. Th smokejumpers exist since the 40s in the US.

Now, albeit regular firefighting is highly dangerous and offers you plenty action, ‘chuting yourself in the wilderness to fight the fire there brings in a new dimension to this job. Great one, guys!
