Cindy Petrich, Donnell Fire Drop Point (DP) 22 Division, gives the day's game plan to firefighters early in the morning at the Donnell Fire on Thursday, August 16, 2018, near Dardanelle, California.
When driving from the Incident Command Post (ICP) to active wildfire areas, mother of four, Petrich, thinks, “Sometimes I feel like I’m in a movie. Is this real?”
“I love this job,” she said during California’s Donnell Fire. “If I wasn’t happy, I wouldn’t be here.”
