Colorado fire academy fosters new wave of wildland firefighters

Some media coverage of what we are accomplishing during this week. #CWFIMA

“When the very worst day hits, we’re training the responders and the leaders that will take over and manage those incidents,” said Travis Bailey, an academy ...

Day 6, student attendance is much lower than earlier in the week due to fewer classes in session but still putting on quality training for our first responders.

Photos from Colorado Wildland Fire & Incident Management Academy's post
