The Casper College Fire Science Program will offer “Introduction to Wild-land Fire Fighting”  over three weekends: October 6 and 7, October 20 and 21 and November 10 and 11.

Through multimedia, student discussion, and interactive participation. Students will develop knowledge of wild-land fire firefighting techniques by learning about fire behavior, fire weather, safety, firefighter preparedness, use of tools and equipment, firing devices, use of water, suppression, securing the control line, use of maps, scouting, communicating, hazardous materials, and standards for survival.

Mark Harshman, instructor for the class said,

“The course is designed for the pre-service student as well as entry level personnel who have no previous wild-land firefighting experience. This course will train firefighters in basic wild-land firefighting skills,”
