Russian Wildfires

Last summer during the Russian wildfire season I got asked to speak on Czech TV about what its like to work on a forest wildfire. I told them about the ones I had been on in BC. They especially liked about the old law in BC where the authorites are allowed to force any adult males to go firefight in case of a shortage of manpower; and if you refuse then you go to jail. At least it was like that back in mid 80s. I told them that broken glass causes lots of fires and that Russia is apparently full of broken glass. Go figure!
