SMOKE JUMPERS. 1 reel, 16 mm., sound, in color. Running time, 10 minutes.
This film shows how the U. S. Forest Service has developed its own air-borne
squadron-S mokejumpers (parachute firefighters) -to combat forest fires in
the remote, roadless areas of our great North Country and the Southwest.
Smokejumping is a fast, efficient way of getting fire fighters where they are
needed in such country. Every jump is a thrilling and hazardous operation.
However, the best possible safety measures-(1) well-planned equipment, (2)
gruelling ground training and (3) approved jump techniques protect these
patriotic and daring young men. The film covers both the glamorous and un-
glamorous aspects of smokejumping, and carries a dramatic forest fire prevention
message. This film will appeal to audiences of all classes and almost all ages.
(Not in Film Libraries; available from regional offices of the Forest Service,
and for sale.)
