Editorial Reviews

An award winning documentary following 24 men and women through a grueling five month fire academy. It’s firefighting like you’ve never seen before -- It's the real thing -- up close and personal... very personal!

Shot at Denver's Fire Academy, this movie takes you into the fire, closer to the action than any movie has done before. Our film crew was given unprecedented access inside the fire building including all training events during the academy. With 140 hours of raw footage shot during a six month period, this film is the definitive journey of the recruit firefighter. It takes you on a heart pounding adrenaline rush right into the heat of the fire.

"We were so close to the action, I was hit by swinging axes and falling debris, slammed into walls by exhausted, unaware firefighters. One camera was damaged and a wireless microphone melted."
-- Rob Bieber, director/camera operator.

"This is a rare, intimate, and exiting glimpse into the exhausting and demanding training that is behind America's courageous firefighters?"
Donna Dewey, Academy Award winning filmmaker

This film is a must see for anyone considering a career in the fire service, and for friends and family of firefighters struggling to understand the true nature of the firefighter's job.
