The Photograph:

Each coloring sheet is created from a real photograph. This photograph was taken by an amazing photographer named Kari Greer. She is contracted by the federal land management agencies in the United States of America to document wildland fire incidents throughout the country.

What are Engine Crews?

Typically, engine crews range in size from two to ten firefighters. They work with specialized wildland fire engines that carry special equipment to spray water and foam. Engine crews also perform a variety of other wildland fire tasks. For example, they respond to reports of new wildfires and serve as initial attack forces. They assist with prescirbed fires and other fuels management projects. They patrol forests and grasslands and connect with campers and other visitors to educate them about fire prevention.* Here is an video that talks about wildland fire engines in the United States of America.
