We are preparing for the upcoming wildland fire season. Our training for the month of May was wildland related. We completed our annual wildland refresher course and the physical standards pack test. We had four members complete the crew boss and engine boss classes as well. We were also involved in the “It’s Your Choice” vehicle accident simulation for the high school students.

Please Please Please, when you come upon an accident scene or construction zone, SLOW DOWN & MOVE OVER. We recently had a vehicle come through an accident scene at a high rate of speed and run over some of our cones. SLOW DOWN & MOVE OVER. Everyone’s safety is at risk.
