WILDLAND FIRE MOVIE DOCUMENTARY
BIA-Sycuan Wildland Fire Fighting Academy
The Sycuan Fire Department and the Bureau of Indian Affairs BIA hosted their 2008 BIA-Sycuan Wildland Firefighter Academy #11 -- the "Two-Bit Thrashers" -- on the Kumeyaay Sycuan Indian Reservation in El Cajon, CA, east San Diego County, Southern Calif.
This professional 20-minute wildland fire fighting school academy movie documentary goes deep into the wildland fire academy's militaristic training methods and Marine Corps discipline philosophy.
Former Marine Corps DI (professional drill instructors) take command of 36 individual civilians, weed out the toughest, and transform the remaining 24 successful fire recruits into a single team of working gung-ho, can-do wildland fire fighters.
From check-in to graduation, the 20-day academy employs tough physical and mental challenges, and uses a steep 800-foot San Diego mountain "MF Mountain" as a metaphor to overcome and conquer personal pre-conceived notions of mental and physical limits through teamwork and close brotherhood comradery.
