Montreal Fire Fighters

A season spent with the Montreal fire fighters.

Winter 1982/83 : documenting in black and white the daily life of the firefighters from the fire station #5 of the « Service de sécurité incendie de Montréal» (Montreal Fire Security Service), in Québec.
Mainly night shifts spent with these firefighters, sharing the expectation of the alert, the sudden departure in oftenly very cold weather for a routine intervention or a perilous rescue.
A look at a profession of service to others exercised by discreet, silent and reserved men in a spirit of comradeship, commitment and self-sacrifice.
(NB: at the time, the staff was not yet mixed).
