The second installment of our Wildland Division training for the upcoming season includes chainsaw training in conjunction with mitigation work in our wildland/urban interface areas. 

Our crews work through the summer trimming up trees that can create ladder fuels, or vegetation that can allow fire to climb to larger trees increasing fire growth and destruction. This is done throughout the Salt Lake Valley.

It’s difficult to express the emotions you feel when a life is saved. 

This morning around 8:00, crews were dispatched to a house fire where firefighters came across an unresponsive dog that had become overcome with smoke. Lola had been unable to exit and was found not breathing. Mutual aid support from West Valley City Fire @wvcut @iaff_local_2970 quickly began resuscitation efforts with oxygen and compressions until she began to start breathing on her own. Quick actions by all made a huge impact. 

Lola eventually was able to stand and will be reunited with her owner. 

This is why we train. This is why we respond.

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.
