Appreciating what firefighters do
I climbed the ladder and stepped onto a roof of wooden shingles and moss. The slant made it hard to climb, as did the uncertainty of whether the wood would give. I followed firefighters Lee Freeman and Jake Winkler up near the peak, and Jake and I got to work.
Lee gave me the choice between a chainsaw or K12 power saw. I chose the K12, but after it kept dying, I picked up the chainsaw.
