Fire Forward’s Basic Wildland Fire Fighter Training
May 7, 2022 @ 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Learn the basics of wildland firefighting and prescribed fire-lighting in this blended online class with one day field training. The training is a two-part course: online coursework plus arduous pack test required prior to attending the in-person field day. By the end of the field day, students will have a basic, wildland firefighter certification (NWCG FFT2) and will be fully qualified to participate on any cooperative, future prescribed burns across the region. Skills acquired at the training include fireline communications, gear and equipment, how prescribed fire ignitions are run, how to operate a pump and install a hoselay, and more.
Food: Lunch is provided to workshop participants and included in the registration cost.
