Ah-Ha Moment

When Gene and Eddie were doing a large project for the Nevada Division of Forestry, creating defensible space and fuel reduction, they realized the impact that they were making to protect families, homes, and the Firefighters who were putting their lives on the line fighting these fires and to know that they had a major impact how they could strategically fight the fires without the loss of lives and homes.
