Very Moving

Not at all what I expected. I was looking coward to live fire scenes, tactics they implement and how they handle the many fires they encounter. I was glad that the life of a firefighter/brotherhood was shown along with the enjoyment of the job given that the politicians want to take more away from us each day. Don't get me wrong many of us that truly live and enjoy helping our customers would do it for free if we didn't have bills. Very moving on the firefighter who was injured and the firefighters struggle with retirement and family issue. Many if that is lost or forgotten due to fighting politics on wages, benefits and staffing levels with an ever declining economy. I truly appreciate this and reflect on how lucky I am to do this career outside Chicago with not as many struggles as Detroit has and is encountering. Everyone please stay safe and god bless. Richard

Excellent and Important Film

BURN is a timely and important film about not only firefighters, but the city of Detroit and its troubling status these days which no doubt is shared by many cities given the current state if the economy. As a Chicago firefighter I have to say I've never seen a movie that did a better job of conveying the "job" than BURN. The filmmakers were somehow able to capture footage inside burning buildings allowing viewers for the first time to see what it is truly like for firefighters operating inside such structures. Despite this amazing footage, I believe the film truly excels with the heartfelt, and sometimes heartbreaking stories of the firefighters and residents of Detroit. Go see it. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll have a new found appreciation for those that are standing by, at this very moment, ready to help you and your family should an emergency occur.
