Introduction to ICS
S-130/190 Firefighter Training
and Introduction to Wildland Fire Behavior
“Firefighters have to be strong enough
to use their own minds all the time and brave enough to be afraid. If you find yourself
working with a crew that is not afraid of fire, find one that is. First-year crew members
need to be told that rules get broken, that safety is not always first. They need to be told
that their incident commander can get them killed without losing his or her job. It is an
absolute fraud to tell them less.”
— Ken Weaver, father of Devin Weaver who died at the Thirtymile Fire
If this guy can be a wildland firefighter,
