Preparing for Fire School

The Crew is scheduled to go to Fire School at MCP Camp Pendleton this Tuesday. Fire School uses live fire drills with controlled prescribed fires. Typically the new Crew Bosses or Incident Commanders type 5 will be placed in charge of a fire and will have to give a size up to dispatch and order resources.

In order to prepare our folks, we ran them through a sand table exercise.
