Our seasonal Wildland crews are in the midst of their training for the upcoming season. The majority of the individuals from the different crews are new to Wildland Fire suppression so we spend time preparing them for the expected tasks they will perform. 

UFA has an IA crew (Initial Attack) that spends the season locally as needed and also supports our municipality wildland/urban interface mitigation efforts. 

We have a dedicated crew at Camp Williams to support military operations should a fire incident occur there. 

Finally, we field 2 engine crews as well, that are deployable throughout the nation as needed. 

This look like something you want to do next season? Go to the link in our bio and sign up on our interest list. It’s an excellent pathway to a full time position with us.

With the warm weather and summer gatherings approaching, let this be a reminder. Pool and water accidents happen quicker than anybody imagines. Please keep your eyes out and swim responsibly.

“Being a Station Captain is more than a job for me; it is a responsibility to my crew and to the people that love them, one that I will never take lightly.” Captain Adam Halsey

Our Station Captains have an exciting job that challenges and rewards them regularly. It is hard to demonstrate everything they do in a short video but here is a glimpse into A Day in the Life…

The final week of Recruit Camp 57 has come and gone. Our recruits have now earned the title of Probationary Firefighter and begin their shift work today. We’re excited for them to join our ranks and can’t wait to see what they bring to the field!

Final training was Rescue Task Force (RTF), or how we respond with police to an active shooter situation. 

The recruits met with Command Staff to review the camp and how we can make it even better.

Families and friends were invited to the training grounds to experience our last 14 weeks and for some delicious bbq. And one last fire evolution to showcase their skills. 

Graduation was standing room only and we love the support! Congratulations and the best of luck!

Did you know that approximately 85% of our emergency response relates to medical or trauma related emergencies?

With 13 weeks of fire training behind them, our Camp 57 recruits spent this week with our Medical Division going over our medical protocols, documentation procedures, and policies specific to our medical response. They also got some hands on instruction to ensure their EMS knowledge aligns with our expectations. 

18 of the 26 recruits already have their NREMT medical certification as either a Basic EMT, Advanced EMT, or Paramedic, and will begin working in the field next week. The remaining 8 will continue in the classroom to earn their EMT certification. 

Graduation will be this Wednesday, May 15 at 6:00 PM at the JATC building, 12723 S Park Ave in Riverton. You can view a livestream on YouTube at this link:

Thanks for following along these 26 recruits’ journey through recruit camp. We’ll have one more episode next week!
