Many road graders build a fireline

I’ve never seen this many road graders working together on one fireline. Impressive.

The video was provided by Guthrie Fire EMS in Oklahoma.

  1. In the south they call them “maintainers”. Worked with them many times, it’s like when we see a dozen coming.

    1. Learning from the Departmen5 Of Transportation in plowing snow. Often called a conga line.

      Have had heavy equipment operators tell me. Building fire line is like plowing snow….. move the fuel.

      Great video. Keep up the good work Bill.
