A Firefighter's Journey is an iOS app presentation of the highly acclaimed film "Ricky's Rib Shack, a Firefighter's Journey".
Shot at Denver's Fire Academy, this movie takes you into the fire, closer to the action than any movie has done before. Our film crew was given unprecedented access inside the fire building including all training events during the academy. With 140 hours of raw footage shot during a six month period, this film is the definitive journey of the recruit firefighter. It takes you on a heart pounding adrenaline rush right into the heat of the fire.
"We were so close to the action, I was hit by swinging axes and falling debris, slammed into walls by exhausted, unaware firefighters. One camera was damaged and a wireless microphone melted."
-- Rob Bieber, director/camera operator.
This film is a must see for anyone considering a career in the fire service, and for friends and family of firefighters struggling to understand the true nature of the firefighter's job.

I figured out only nine months ago that I wanted to be a Firefighter/Paramedic. I just watched this movie in my first Fire Science class, and it was quite the experience. At the end, my instructor said "It's even hard just watching it, isn't it?" and he was SO correct. I came out of seeing what must be done to get that cherished badge with a BIG mix of emotions. But it did make me want this career more than I did before seeing the film. It also helped that there was a mix of ages in the Fire Academy class that they follow, since I'm 34 just starting to go at this.
Bottom line--the film is engaging and fantastic to watch, whether you just want to know a little more about firefighting, or you are someone entertaining it as a career. I still have piles of stuff to learn before I figure I'll make it into my dream job, but this certainly helped cement my confidence and desire to pursue it.

This is the real thing. Firefighters go through strenuous training that an average person would not subject themselves to. If you want to see what it's like to become a firefighter, you should see this film. Do you have what it takes?
