Joe spends lavishly on the training and equpment his firefighters receive, melding together proven firefighting techniques with the latest electronics, computers, and space-age materials to create an elite, hard-hitting force that is able to fly all of its personnel and equipment to a fire anywhere in the Western U.S. in a matter of hours.
