Hi everyone I just want to say thank you for  everything you do.  In remembrance of 9/11 the more years pass the more people forget but i will never forget.  That is the reason I am a firefighter. My sacrifice your sacrifice is very important.  thank you again

Hi -

I am currently working on a project that will be devoted to the Wildland Firefighting community, and I am hoping to find a female wildland firefighter who might be willing to blog about her experiences once in a while. 

If anyone is interested, please feel free to shoot me an email at leney@avuetech.com.

Thanks so much!

Hi ladies,

I'm not really a firefighter...I've been working on prescribed fires for the last several years in Texas and most of my training comes from that angle.  Anyway, I just took the introductory wildland firefighter course (S130/190) and they convinced me it's time to trade in my leather work boots for some real fire boots.  Any recommendations?

Hi gals,
Attended a controlled burn at Lorne on the Victorian sw coast yesterday. A good day with our colleagues from Parks Vic and DSE. Great to see quite a few women on the crews all doing a great job.
Still very wet here, more rain on the way.

HI everyone,
Im in the Rural Fire Service in Queensland, Australia. We attend all types of incidents ranging from wildfires, MVA's, isolated/ remote structures and most rescently assistance with the salvage after the floods and cyclones that we have had over here.

Hi everyone,
I’m a volunteer firefighter with the Country Fire Authority in Victoria, Australia. My brigade attends bushfire (wildfire) as well structure, Hazmat, MVA’s and other incidents.
Currently I’m in the Women and Fire Mentoring Program - http://www.cfaconnect.net.au/news/women-and-fire.html - if your fire dept runs something similar I’d love to hear about it.

Hello everyone...I do admire you very much. Being a Volunteer Firefighter in Texas I do get to fight Wildland and Structure fires. I have had some training with the Texas Forestry Service. Our fires are mainly brush fires and we do use brush trucks. God bless you all and keep you safe..........

Good Evening Ladies! I am interested in learning more about Wildland Firefighting. I have been with a couple volunteer fire departments since joining the fire service in 1997, and have responded to several mountain fires but have never had any formal training fighting them. Where is the best place to try and get training classes?
