SUMMARY: KPLC's Amma Siriboe spoke with a few firefighters to find out how they manage their health while working on wildfires. Hudson Gros, a firefighter for over a year, discussed the intense pressure and crazy intensity of fighting fires. He mentioned staging engines on the road and waiting for the fire to come through and then knocking it out. Gros described the feeling as pretty intense and emphasized the importance of knowing how to manage their health while working under such demanding conditions.

Firefighters have been putting out one wildfire after another, and nonstop work on very little sleep can make a big impact. 7NEWS got some more insight into how they maintain their health despite the pressure of saving lives in the community.
