The Fire Critic reviewed a new docu-drama produced by BET. First two episodes are posted with the review, HERE.
From the BET webpage:
Though Compton has a population of only about 100,000 people, there are a reported 75 active gangs operating within the area, making it a unique environment for the city’s emergency teams. With one of the highest crime rates in the country, gunshot wounds, gang-related violence, and mangled cars are just another day on the job for these highly trained professionals. Day after day, all the drama is caught on tape as the Compton Fire Department team – an ambulance operator, multiple firefighters, an intern and Marcel Melanson, one of the youngest Battalion Chiefs in the country – fights battles both at home and on the job.
Loved the 32 year old battalion chief’s personal ride. 1959 Cadillac low-rider, white with purple flames.
A ten episode mini-series, more information HERE.
