Twin Falls District Firefighters Attend Guard School

Last week, Twin Falls District BLM Fire Management firefighters attended Guard School in the Sawtooth Mountains. 47 new firefighters from the Twin Falls District BLM and Sawtooth National Forest attended this week long training. 

Throughout the week firefighters learned how to deploy a fire shelter, dig a fire line, create progressive hose lays, conduct a back burn operations and most importantly, do all of this while providing for safety first. Throughout this experience, firefighters gained valuable training and insight into their new positions with the BLM. 

Congratulations to all our new firefighters. Have a safe season!
