The Geronimo Hotshots’ 2014 fire season

The Geronimo Hotshots from the San Carlos Apache Reservation in Arizona have filmed, edited, and/or been featured in at least a half dozen videos, documenting what they do and giving the public an idea of what it is like to serve on their 20-person crew. We showed you one in November about the 2013 season that was recorded by the crew but edited by The Atlantic filmmaker Sam Price-Waldman..

The video below summarizes the crew’s 2014 wildfire season.

The video below features the Geronimo Hotshots, firefighters from the San Carlos Apache Reservation in southeastern Arizona. It was shot by crew member Samson Belvado in 2013, much of it with a helmet camera, and put together by the The Atlantic filmmaker Sam Price-Waldman.
