New Free Wildland/Urban Interface Fires Training Program Available

Date: 2015-03-05
Share |

The Firefighters Support Foundation’s (FSF) newest training program is now available.  Wildland/Urban Interface Fires address the fact that urban and suburban  fire departments are increasingly being deployed to wildfire areas, in part because urban and suburban communities are ever-expanding to the wildland boundaries.  The program consists of a 60-minute video presentation and an accompanying 26-slide PowerPoint.

The program is presented by Battalion Chief Scott Magers of the Hillsboro, OR fire department.  Chief Magers has had an extensive amount of experience in all aspects of the fire service, including wildland/urban interface fires, during his 34 years of service.  He is a Type 1 Incident Commander with the Oregon State Fire Marshal's Office, overseeing one of their Incident Management Teams.

Covered topics include: the importance of situational awareness, structural and site preparation, intel gathering, structural protection, often overlooked dangers, apparatus positioning, maintaining mobility, confronting the fire, retreat, and much more.  Aimed primarily at the company officer, all fire fighters will derive significant benefit from this program and Chief Magers' many years of experience in an urban department with a wildland interface.

The program is free to all members of public safety and  emergency management agencies.  Simply go to to download your copy.
