  Chen Yaowen has been the eyes of the 770-acre forest at the Ma'anshan Forest Park since he was officially employed at the age of 60 as a fire lookout there in 2013.
  2013年,时年60岁的陈耀文正式受聘,自此他便全年无休地充当马鞍山森林公园4700亩森林的“眼睛”。
  Although a monitoring system has been set up in the forest, lookouts are still necessary for fire prevention as they can identify small changes in the distance that may be a fire, and report it immediately. In recent years, Chen has prevented several potentially disastrous fires by informing the security department immediately upon discovering the hidden danger.
  如今马鞍山森林公园已形成了完善的防火监控体系,但防火瞭望员仍然不可或缺。防火瞭望员能远距离观测到潜在隐患带来的细小变化,并立即上报。近年来不少隐患都是陈师傅首先发现,第一时间通知安全保卫科,将隐患消灭在萌芽中。

  The lookout tower, Lingxiao Pavilion, where Chen works is only a 20-minute walk up from the foot of the mountain. When he goes down every two weeks to buy living necessities, Chen always manages to return in half an hour.
  陈耀文所在的防火瞭望塔“凌霄阁”至山脚并不算远,步行20分钟可达。陈耀文每半个月下山买够生活物资,最多半小时来回。
  For the first six years, Chen guarded the mountain all by himself. When it was dark, he felt afraid and lonely, just as anyone would be. To alleviate his loneliness, he got a cat and a dog to keep him company. In 2020, Chen's wife joined him, and now the couple guard the forest together. "After all these years, I have developed a special feeling for the mountain."
  前6年,他一直是独自守山。晚上周围一片漆黑时,陈耀文也会感到害怕和孤独。后来,为缓解孤独,陈耀文收留了一只猫一只狗。再到2020年,老伴收拾包袱前来,陪着陈耀文一同守山。“守了这些年,对山有了感情。”
