Along with the chill of winter has come what some might consider to be an odd request from Xanadu's Weyrleader. In the last week, he's asked the Search and Rescue wing to start training with firestone. Firestone? What's that all about? Apparently in the wake of all of those fires at Western, D'son wants the Weyr to be well-prepared to create fire-breaks and the easiest way to do that is to have dragons prepared to do so.
