Fire Season

We made it through one of two seasons here in So AZ. One season is Christmas and the holiday season and the other is fire season. Seems like that's all we get anymore. There have been some additions to the calendar as well as a cancellation or two. Tubac has cancelled their Basic fire class because there was only a couple people put nominations in. There are others options like Palominas or Tucson. The info for these is on the calendar. We need more people for the S-230/231 class. If you need it or know of anyone who does, get with Flip Elliot from the state to sign up. The S-244 class (Field Observer) has been moved to November of this year. More info to come next training season. The Helicopter classes are moving forward. The gang is working on dates and will soon have that all tied up and I'll get the info out. Hope everyone had a good holiday season. As always, contact me with questions.

2014-2015 Training Season

The new training season is upon us. We came up with a new calendar which I think covers a good range of classes. We plan to put on two I-300/I-400 classes. Date and Time to be determined. We are putting on an M-410 class the week of the 20th of October. This course or an equivalent is required for teaching the unit level and above for every class beginning at the 100 level so now is a good chance for you to get this class. It's in Tucson at the Tucson Fire Center. Unless specified, send the nominations to me at or at fax 520-807-6293. If you want to host a class, please let me know. I may be able to help with books and materials. Please call or email with any questions. 520-202-2704
