This undated photo provided by the Missoula Smokejumper Base in Missoula, Mont., shows smokejumpers with their gear. Throughout the summer, public tours are offered daily at Missoula’s Aerial Fire Depot and Smokejumper Center, giving a look at the preparation and skill required of the smokejumpers who are trained to parachute in to attack fires in remote, rugged places.
