Firefighters were trained in advanced skills and knowledge needed to safely and effectively operate in a wildland fire environment. During initial phase of a wildland fire, engines make up the bulk of fire suppression forces. Consequently, effective use of engines and water tenders are critical in managing fires safely and efficiently during initial and extended suppression activities.
Workshop participants are encouraged to take the skills and concepts learned at the workshop and apply them at their respective fire departments.
Workshop facilitators included professional fire management officials from Local, State, and Federal agencies including the Bureau of Land Management, US Forest Service, and Utah Division of Forestry, Fire & State Lands.
