Welcome Home Phil Hodson

Welcome Home Phil Hodson Date Posted: Sep 8, 2017


It was good to see Hoddy is home safe and sound after spending the last four weeks in Canada fighting the wildfires.  He said it was good to be home, but it was an experience that he will never forget.  Initially, he was very nervous but settled in after a day or two in getting used to their systems etc.  He was provided with a vehicle (Chevy) and at times embarrassed himself by getting into their passenger side to drive.  He was camped about one and a half hour away from the fires.  He did see a bear when driving, but by the time he got his camera out it had disappeared into the bush. They were all very aware that bears were a potential hazard at their camps as the fires had driven them out of the forests.

Please click on the link below for all the deployment newsletters.  Hoddy is always at the back of photos so look hard and you will see him.  He said to me they only got a good clear photo of him once and that is the one in this article.
