  1. Both my husband and I absolutely LOVE Fire Country. Please do not cancel. Bode’s character IS the show but we do agree all other actors/characters are very likeable and complicated…makes for a good story line. OK…. so firefighters do not like the show, Fire Country is not based on a true story.
    It is a show just like so many other TV dramas. Entertaining but not meant to depict true events.

  2. I love the show! Lot of drama and action Great acting! Bode is great! He was an actor on seal team…but I like him better in Fire County He is the executive producer The ratings will climb up up! Right now I’m watching Fire Ciuntry New Years it’s been on since 8pm Marathon…love watching it! Happy New Year!

  3. I love the show and I loved Max in Seal Team. I went into morning when he died in Seal Team but was comforted when I could watch him in Fire Country. So few good action shows please renew Fire Country.

  4. My wife and I think this is the best show on television. Bode and the rest of the crew have such different story lines. We agree that Bode is the main character but the entire cast together with Bode is what makes this show so great. We feel this show will be around for a long time.
