Making a Fire
Because the hiker’s body temp was so low, the fire crews determined they couldn’t transport him right away after their inspection. As a result, they built a fire for him to warm up and stabilize his body temperature. Once he was permitted to move, the crew wrapped him in blankets to preserve his body temperature from decreasing. Given that he had made it thus far on his own, it was evident that this man was a soldier. And it was all upward from there once he was in the arms of the Santa Fe Fire Department, with John by his side, of course.
