9:46 am
is tang nguyen. thank you for joining us. tell us more about this photo. who is this captain in the photo and what do you know about what was happening when w it was taken? >> um, the photo was given to me by lincoln peters, he's one of the crew members of the mill creek hot shots. they came from northern california to help battle it fire. a captain sitting there taking a brief break is justin greenwald of the same crew. it was just a random moment that lincoln took this picture and it came out that way. when i received the picture was when my partner and i went out to the base to capture footage of the hot loadinup in the helicopters to get to the fire perimeter and, you know, one of the things that's been challenging huer is that the terrain is so difficult to get to even for the firefighters
9:47 am
that we were reliant on images from crews when it was safe for them to get pictures. we just happened to stumble on that one and it really paints a picture of what it's like to be out there. you know our firefighters, it's the beginning of the season. we're seeing fire right now and the amount of acres burned so far that we normally see towards the end of summer. year to date we've had more acres and fires right now. this image resinates with us who have been doing this. a lot of us are still trying to recover from the fatigue that we accumulated from last year's fire season. >> right. >> the second side of things is -- >> no, go ahead, captain. >> the second side is we understand the fatigue is not just for the firefighters. it's also for the public too. who are having to deal with it. especially if it's in their
9:48 am
backyard. the picture really struck a cord with a lot of people. >> exactly. that's what my question was. just so well captures how exhausting this work is. to your point you talk about why you think it's resinating with so many people. i want to talk about the hot shots. can you explain a little bit about what hot shots are and the critical work they do? >> hot shots are a hand crew team that the u.s. forest has and they're spread out. there are different types of hand crews. the hot shots are the elite, if you will, of the hand crews that are out there. they're trained to cut vegetation, they carry all the equipment. they go into the most difficult of places. >> and you know as you mentioned they do some of the
9:49 am
most grueling work. we saw how tired that captain looked in that photo. there are some reports that some hot shots are quitting, they're going to fire units with maybe better pay. how much of a challenge is that right now and what is being done to keep thththth burning out? >> that's a whole different discussion in itself. however, you know, as far as taking care of our crews here is that we definitely want to make sure that we get them in to do the work, however we're always looking out for their welfare. making sure they're taken care of. what a lot of people don't see is that all of the personnel that are actually called up to actually support the field troops when they come out and so it's an on going thing. it's a challenge for sure. and so up here we have an incident management team that was called up which i'm a part
9:50 am
of and our job is to support the firefighters that are on the line. >> and what is the latest right now in the willow fire burning? i though you said it's be very challenging the areas are it's burning, very hard to access. >> yes. so the first three or four days or so it was really difficult to get to the fire perimeter and actually get some containment lines in place. so we attacked the fire primarily by air the first several days while our ground firefighters prepared for structure defense on the ground. over time we eventually flew the firefighters in and were able it increase containment line. right now we're at 2,777 acres. there haven't been new growth in the last day or two which we're excited about. that containment percentage is at 56. >> that is good news. last question to you, captain,
9:51 am
you mentioned it we saw the picture just the burnout, the fatigue, this hard work. we're so early in the year already. what are you anticipating in in the months to come? >> well, it's no surprise to anybody that the whole state was in a drought situation. we didn't see a lot of rain up and down the coast. that leaves us pretty vulnerable to fire. like you said, it's the beginning of the season and we've got a long ways to go. so the whole thing is that we have to keep an eye on our troops. you know, the one thing that i subscribe to is when it comes to public safety and making these fires go away is that it's a joint effort between not only public safety the firefighters but the public. the public can do a lot to actually lessen the burden for us. when you're out here, these
9:52 am
forest fires are primarily caused by nature or by people. and nature we can't control but with people we can control. so if you're out in the forest and enjoying it, that's fantastic. you have to be cautious about it and only be lighting campfires where it's legal to do so. and so many of these situations is that if we could avoid a lot of these large fires just by following the rules. >> absolutely. we all need to do our part. captain, thank you so much for joining us. we appreciate all you and your crews are doing out there. thank you. all right. next, the boss is back. bruce springsteen

9:57 am
i learned it's okay to not be okay. you know, it's okay to feel sadness. it's okay to feel anger. you know, these are emotions of the human experience that we're supposed to embrace. you know, life is not always good, good, good, you know? there's ups and downs. there's sadness. there's hard times. and, you know, we're feeling those feelings for a reason, and we're supposed to embrace them. you know, i learned that, you know, everyone's perfectly imperfect the way they are -- they're beautiful in every way, and that you should love yourself, 'cause you're so unique. i would say there's definitely so much help out there -- you're not alone. >> how has that loss -- clearly, it's empowered you, but how has it really empowered you to help other people? >> what empowers me to help other people is the pain that i go through daily from not having my sister here and knowing the pain of going through my own journey. and i'll do anything in the world, you know, to save one person from that pain, to save one family from going through that pain. and that's my goal. and that's what i'm dedicating my life to for the rest of my life -- to, you know, end the stigma against mental health, to end the stigma against suicide, you know, to make sure people, you know, understand how serious it is -- that, you know, mental-health illnesses are diseases, just like any other disease. you know, there's a science --
9:58 am
a chemical imbalance. so, you know, that is really my goal, and, you know, that's what has made me doing what i'm doing today is the pain and just trying to help other people and trying to educate other people on mental health. >> if you could give us some good examples, how have you coped with stress and anxiety during difficult times, especially during this last year and the pandemic? >> definitely. you know, the pandemic was hard for everyone, you know, including myself, you know? it was -- 2020 was such a hard year, so much anxiety. it was just -- you know, we never knew what was next. we didn't really know what was going on. it was so hard. it was scary. so, you know, i had to -- i picked up meditation during, you know, the pandemic, and i learned how to meditate. you know, i use that app headspace a lot. i also work with a mental-health support coach that helps me and takes me through meditations, as well as i journal a lot. >> is there any advice that you would give to people who are dealing with anxiety and depression right now? >> i would definitely tell them that they're not alone, that, you know, there are so many other people going through this fight, and you've got this, and you're gonna make it through it. and, you know, there's help out there for you. there's people who love you,
9:59 am
people who want you to get better. >> i heard the word mentioned once, but "hope" -- tell us about the role of hope in this fight. >> you know, hope is huge, because hope keeps us pushing for the next day. and, you know, and i just want to, you know, spread hope and love to everyone to understand that, you know, keep pushing because, you know, there is gonna be a brighter day -- it is gonna get better. >> if someone does need a little extra support at times, where is a good place to turn? >> you know, i've recently done a lot of work with calhope. and, you know, you can visit them at and they have a amazing, amazing organization filled with so many resources and help for all the california people. and i really would encourage them to go there to find help and find resources. >> is the website. thank you so much, solomon, for sharing your journey. we really appreciate it. >> thank you so much. thanks for having me. i really appreciate it. >> and one more time, for people more interested in learning more about calhope, it's, or you can call the warm line -- that's (833) 317-hope.
