Yesterday morning, I took a ride on PayDay lift to meet up with our Risk Manager and Vehicle Maintenance Team in order to learn how our fire trailers work. It was a beautiful morning and the recent rains have made everything a wonderful shade of green - which served to remind each and every one of us that the more rain we get, the higher the potential for fire danger later summer. For information on what you can do to help prevent wild fires as well as updates on current fires and more, see www.utahfireinfo.gov In any case, I learned that chemical fire extinguishers shouldn't be used on grass fires due to the fact that they will spread it quicker than they can put it out. I also took advantage of being up on the mountain to ride our ZipRider back down, just another hard day at the office! Check out some photos I took below:
