Wildland Firefighting



The responsibilities of the Wildland Teams are broken down into two main categories. The first responsibility of the Wildland Teams is wildland fire suppression readiness and response. This responsibility includes coordinating the wildland training, overseeing equipment and the equipment cache, managing the Wildland Operations Plan, the Resource Mobilization plan, and all National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) certifications for regional and district staff.

The second responsibility is as important as the first; reducing the threat of a catastrophic wildland fire in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) through prevention efforts like public education and hazardous fuels mitigation.
