Under Control

“Under Control” is about the camaraderie shared and the exhaustion experienced after fighting a tough fire, breathing canned air, feeling your way around a smoke filled building, and dragging hose lines or other tools of the trade.

This piece depicts two firefighters at rest after successfully getting a fire Under Control.  One of the firefighters is standing, wearing a helmet and jacket open at the front.

The second man is sitting on the ground with his jacket and helmet next to him, with one arm on a knee and the other on his neck.


Having been a career firefighter, I experience empathy for the work and talents of professional firefighters.
