Hersch Wilson is a 30-year veteran volunteer firefighter and EMT with Santa Fe County’s Hondo Fire Department.  Firefighter Zen: A Field Guide to Thriving in Tough Times brings the reader into the front lines with Hersch and his teams and offers succinct field notes for those of us on the somewhat less dramatic sidelines.  How do firefighters keep calm in the midst of chaos ?  How do they process the grief and sometimes anger they feel with passion ?  How do they summon grit and courage in the face of monstrous tragedy ?   Be brave, be kind, fight fires.
Interviewing Hersch was enormous fun despite the subject matter, and these 23 minutes are dedicated to all the brave and dedicated firefighters in our County and in our country.
