SISTERS, OR -- A Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire Captain injured six months ago in a 40-foot fall is now back at work. Capt. Thornton Brown was rappelling in Death Valley with two other firefighters when fell; he spent the night in a remote canyon and had to be air lifted out the next day. 


Firefighters Rally To Help Injured Captain


Injured firefighters must pass a physical abilities test before returning to work. Officials say Captain Brown “breezed through” the process and reported for duty this past weekend.
