Wildfire: It's Not Just in the Mountains Anymore!

Tuesday, April 25
Wildland fires are not "just" in the West and they are not "just" in the mountains. They are everywhere across the United States. They affect small rural departments, mid-size combination departments, and everything in between. Responding to and engagement of a wildland fire are not like the old days of wearing turnouts and attacking the head. Each day, municipal firefighters are responding to wildland fires and many times with catastrophic results: line-of-duty deaths. Firefighters of all types and in all locations are losing their lives because of limited wildland fire experience and exposure to appropriate preparedness. This workshop aims to change all that.
