Wildland fire has been a major part of Bill Gabbert‘s life for several decades. After growing up in the south, he migrated to southern California where he lived for 20 years, working as a wildland firefighter. Later he took his affinity for firefighting to Indiana and eventually the Black Hills of South Dakota where he was the Fire Management Officer for a group of seven national parks. Today he is the creator and owner of WildfireToday.com, FireAviation.com, and Sagacity Wildfire Services and serves as an expert witness in wildland fire.
If you are interested in wildland fire, welcome… grab a cup of coffee and put your feet up. Oh, and by the way, this picture was taken in 1972 when I was on the El Cariso Hot Shots.
