In Dallas, Texas, Richard joins the huge airport's standby fire fighters. He's spared neither outdated physical tests not chores and hazing. A three years training course is condensed into three weeks, the targets lowered somewhat. He learns the different functions of the utterly gigantic fire engine, which has two water cannons and damages paths worse then a tank, which it borrowed some technology from. Just after passing his exams, in time, he witnesses a real call to put out a wild fire on the meadow grounds.
