Firefighters from Phoenix Fire Department Station 18 stand for a portrait after a house fire on June 16, a day when the high was 115°F. “The heat definitely intensifies everything we do this time of year,” says Capt. Mike Adelman, second from right, who has spent 27 years with the department. The firefighters often perform activities similar to what they will encounter on site as a means of confronting the summer’s highest temperatures. They also work to control their breathing and pay strict attention to their situational awareness, so as not to expend energy they’ll need when calls come in. “What it comes down to is staying trained up, staying acclimated to the heat and understanding the environment that we live in and that we work in, and really just being able to overcome those obstacles,” says Richie Robnett, third from right. “A big part of this job is, you’ve got to get comfortable being uncomfortable.” Read more about the climate crisis in the American West, where drought and extreme heat have created life-threatening conditions, and see more pictures at the link in bio.
