2012 Highlights from a Fire Fighter's Helmet



Published on Dec 31, 2012
This video is to show people what it is like to fight fires, and what firefighters across the nation do every day. The more people who realize, the better it will be for our profession.
I put together a bunch of clips from some of the better helmet cam footage I got this year while fighting fires in Highland Park. I had to replace several lens's and a couple mounts throughout the year, so the camera was not always on my helmet. I used a contour ROAM. other then the lens being easily scratch I would have to say it held up great for what it went through.
All the clips are from my own camera, and they are all real fires. No training fires.
The music is not minem it is obviously Eminems- till I collapse. I was just trying to make it a bit more interesting then just a bunch of clips. I understand some people might not appreciate the music, but hey its my video.
We love doing our job in Highland Park. And we do it often. Our aggressive attack might seem odd to some since most of these are "vacant" homes. But we are here to put fires out and the best way to do that is from the inside. Stay safe brothers...stay low
