Spain’s BRIF

A wildland firefighter in Spain told us about this video featuring the BRIF (reinforcement brigade forest fire). It covers their training and shows the firefighters working on fires.

The unit is celebrating their 21st anniversary after being created by former members of hotshot crews in 1994. Since then it has grown into 10 bases staffed by 600 firefighters.

In 2012 we had another video about this organization that impressed us with their skill in using flappers to suppress brush fires.
