Abstract
Description
The reduction in State government positions coupled with the changes in land use and the dramatic increase of "urban sprawl" has truly tested the South Carolina Forestry Commission's Wildland firefighters over the past several years. Hazards from smoke produced by various plastics, rubber, solvents along with the natural dangers of a wildfire makes this occupation very dangerous. The following article recognizes several current issues of modem wildland firefighting and shows how enclosed cab bulldozers will alleviate these concerns.
