Firefighter’s Helmet Cam Takes Us Through a Year on the Job [VIDEO]

By: Josh Wolford - January 7, 2013

Firefighters have a dangerous job – everybody knows that. But it’s rare to see a first-person account of the daily grind of one of the nation’s bravest public servants.

One Detroit firefighter compiled footage from a year of fighting fires in Detroit’s Highland Park, and the result is 8 minutes of intense footage.

“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,” says the firefighter.
