WILDLAND FIREFIGHTER TRAINING
Seasonal Firefighter Basic Training
You will learn the basic concepts, techniques,
skills, and theories on fire suppression and control.
Included in this course is fire organization, wildland fire
behavior, and fire safety. This
course satisfies one-half of required training standards needed to
become a wildland firefighter. The
technical application of scraping the ground, using water, and
throwing dirt is completed the first days on duty in station after
individuals have been hired by an agency.
Additional courses will be taught
such as a fireline assessment course called LCES Workshop and a
foundational leadership course call Human Factors on the Fireline. LCES Workshop addresses the four key elements of safe
fireline engagements. Human
Factors on the Fireline focuses on the human issue we all face while
performing at high levels in dynamic and risk filled environments.
