BURN: One Year On The Front Lines Of The Battle To Save Detroit

As a part of the film crew for BURN, I spent just over a year living with and responding to emergency calls with both Engine 50 on Detroit's East Side and Engine 40 on the West Side.

The lessons learned about these brave Fire Service Workers still sticks with me today. They are daily putting their lives on the line to help the community in the continual struggle to come back from financial collapse. I have nothing but respect for the DFD and the brave men and women who each and every day look evil in the eye and say "This far and no further."
