There is an out of control forest fire raging in Banff National Park of Canada and it is up to the wardens to coordinate a special team to make sure the fire doesn’t blow through the containment lines and blaze toward the town of Banff. It is a highly scientific battle fought with giant aircraft, might and more fire!

Meanwhile, the smoke from the fire is playing havoc on the visitors. Search and Rescue specialists are slinging in on helicopters and plucking confused hikers off smoke covered mountains.

Across the country in British Columbia, Safety Specialists patrolling the West Coast Trail in Pacific Rim National Park of Canada are answering emergency calls from hurt and lost hikers on the rugged 77km trail. The West Coast Trail is so muddy and difficult that it has the same injury rate as a downhill ski facility.
