Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare is a documentary about the state of healthcare in our nation and what we can do to find a solution. Many people have asked about the title of the movie wondering if it is about fires. The answer is yes and no.
The term “escape fire” has two meanings. The first pertains to fighting fires as we would expect. It originated when there was a fire in Mann Gulch, Montana. A seemingly harmless wildfire broke out and a team of smokejumpers parachuted in to contain it. Unfortunately, the fire took a drastic turn and they were forced to run for their lives.
When the foreman realized that they would not survive the blaze he did something that seemed a little crazy. He set a fire, watched the flames spread, and then stepped into the burned area. He urged his crew to do the same, but they continued running. The majority of the crew perished in the fire, but the foreman survived. The foreman knew they were in a bad place so he took a moment to step back and see that the solution was right in front of him.
This brings us to the second definition of the term “escape fire” which is “an improvised, effective solution to a crisis that cannot be solved using traditional approaches”.
This is very fitting for the current state of healthcare in the United States. What we have is not working and we need to get creative to find a solution. Non-traditional medical approaches are one of the solutions to help solve the healthcare crisis in our country.
Join us for our movie night to learn more!
