    The Lookout Podcast Ep.58 NFFE Wildfire members, Max Alonzo & Steve Gutierrez

    Host Luke Barrett is joined virtually by National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE), Max Alonzo and Steve Gutierrez. Max and Steve joined the podcast to share the disparages in Wildland Firefighting such as earning a livable wage, retirement, support. housing, and better health screenings. If you fight fire long enough you will know someone diagnosed with cancer and for me it's been several friends diagnosed with aggressive cancer. I lost one friend to cancer and we had just jumped a fire together a few months prior. If Wildland Firefighters receive better health screenings these cancers will be caught at a manageable stage and treatment will be more successful. Help the Union get these much needed changes by calling your state representative, congressman, or any politician and urging them to support Wildland Firefighters.

  • The Lookout Podcast Ep.55 Featuring Life Chiropractic, the Great Dr. Davis

    The Lookout Podcast Ep.55 Featuring Life Chiropractic, the Great Dr. Davis

    Host Luke Barrett is joined by the Great Chiropractor Dr. Davis to discuss health and wellness, self care, Fire, and not taking short cuts in life. Dr. Davis explains the power and benefits of Chiropractic care such as removing interference caused by a part of the body being out of alignment. I highly recommend giving Dr. Davis a visit at his clinic Life Chiropractic in Missoula Montana. For my brothers and sisters in the Fire community I recommend a visit to the Chiropractor before fire season, during fire season as much as you can, and post fire season.
