The Amsterdam fire brigade needs to change. At the oldest fire station, we follow station commander Gerrie on the eve of a move and during the process to make the organization more inclusive and diverse. Gerrie represents the old guard, and he watches with dismay as his familiar working environment disappears. Burning Out provides insight into the dynamics arising on the fault line of cultural change.
