13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
This photo was taken at the training center for the Cincinnati Fire Department. On this day, recruit firefighters had to face their fears by climbing the 75' aerial ladder, securing themselves to a ladder rung, and letting go. Once the recruit completed the task, they were able to descend the ladder.
