A wildland firefighter has produced an eight-minute video enthusiastically laying out what she sees as the pros and cons of the job.

Ronni Ocampo describes herself on YouTube:

I’m here to showcase all aspects of my true passion, wildland firefighting. This channel is a place where I want to serve those who serve their communities by providing fitness, nutrition, fire education, inspiration and discuss mental health to the fire world.

On June 28, 2020 in the first of 19 videos she has posted, Mrs. Ocampo explained that she was five months pregnant and about to be a first-time mom.

The video below was uploaded January 17, 2021.

She has posted other wildland fire videos about what’s in my red bag, gear, advice from experienced wildland firefighters, a day in the life, how to apply, and others.
