So I'll say from the outset that I've got over 15 years with the emergency services, but not a fire department.
This documentary was incredibly well done!
The footage was amazing- if you wanna see a fire from a firefighters perspective, with no holds barred action, then this is for you!
Being non American, I know literally nothing about Detroit. I had heard via the news that they were in a financial mess, so this was a real eye opener. A sad state of affairs when essential services such as fire and police have no money to perform their job.
No money for PPE, equipment and truck repairs is a sad, sad state of affairs that everyone needs to see to believe and then make an issue out of.
It'd be great to see a follow up in a year or so to see the difference....
