When only the best will do

It’s 450C with the sun blazing down on a parched dusty terrain and an armoured personnel carrier has just been hit by an IED. The vehicle is badly damaged, lying on its side and on fire. Two soldiers are trapped inside, others have managed to escape the vehicle. Helicopter air cover is called up to ensure that the site is safe from insurgent attack and the on-station firefighting team are immediately called on to get to the scene as fast as possible to extinguish the fire and, hopefully, release the trapped and injured soldiers alive.
