This image was created in August 2014, by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Health Scientist, Aaron Sussell, PhD, MPH, and depicted National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Health Communication Specialist, Elizabeth Dalsey, from the Western States Offices, as she was interviewing members of a CALFire crew of young Hispanic firefighters, while at the French Fire, in the Sierra National Forest, in Madera Country, California. With climate change, U.S. wildland fire seasons are becoming longer and hotter, creating additional health and safety challenges for local, state, and federal agencies that employ wildland firefighters. In 2014, NIOSH began collaboration with the U.S. Forest Service on research to improve prevention for wildland firefighters. This was one of the entries in the 2015 CDC Connects, Public Health in Action Photo Contest.
