I’ve been fascinated by the whole fire watch thing since reading the book by Philip Connors. And of course, now there’s an incredible game out, Firewatch, that sadly, comes as close as I ever will to experiencing it.
But that doesn’t mean I can’t dream. Almost all of the fire watching jobs I’ve seen have been out in the East, but it turns out that after 70 years of using more techie ways to do it, PA is reintroducing fire watch towers. Now they’ll need people to staff them, eh?
