Hi everyone. I'm new to Firefighter Nation, having some extra time for now, waiting to see if I need knee surgery after blowing it out on wildland fire... A couple weeks back, I participated in my departments annual wildland refresher training where new philosophies regarding how we deal with protecting structures in the wildland interface were reviewed. From what I understand, since the burnover last year (USFS E-53) the USFS has come out and let folks know that they would no longer be providing structure protection. As a county fire department here in California, my department is committed to providing structure protection but has now fully embraced the concept of foam and go. Maybe this is old new for most folks but it sure seems like a safer alternative, protecting our firefighters as well as saving more homes. If this is a new concept for any of you, please feel free to give me a shout. We have combined research and training materials from LA County FD as well as USFS and CDF resources to come up with these new guidelines. Stay safe!
