The days are longer and temperatures continue to rise, hinting that wildfire season is officially upon us. In 2016, an estimated 67,000 wildfires burned through nearly six million acres of land, with Oklahoma, California, and Alaska accounting for almost one-third of the total acreage. As the costs of battling wildland fires surge to record highs, there’s no better time than now for your battalion to brush up on the fundamentals of wildfire training.
TargetSolutions offers two bundles of courses that explore the dangers and safety procedures of operating around wildland fires. RT-130: Wildland Fire Safety Refresher, which TargetSolutions will be updating for 2017 in the coming weeks, and the S-190 Introduction to Wildland Fire Behavior provide more than 15 hours of dedicated training on the subject.
This infographic examines recent wildland fire statistics and details how TargetSolutions can help prepare your wildfire training for the upcoming season.
