Wildland Fire

Firefighters with equipment near fire trucks, surrounded by smoky air in a forested area, indicating wildfire response.

We have a large area of rural/wild-land interface within our 525 square mile district. We are the initial response agency to private, state, and federal lands within that district. Our responsibility to provide first response fire suppression to those areas requires extensive and on-going training regarding wild-land fire suppression with a huge emphasis on firefighter safety and response.
