2015-2016 Calendar

The dates established for upcoming courses are listed here in the calendar. This year, I'm only gonna post courses if I know for sure folks are going to give the class. The last few years we have had listings for courses that didn't happen and I don't want to do that this year. As I hear of classes becoming available, I will update the calendar as well as post it here so you know what's coming up. Let me know if I can help in any way. Thanks Cheryl

New Training year

Happy Training season all you bloggers. Been a busy fire year. Hope you all got out and were able to get some good assignments in. I spent 3 months in Wenatchee, WA working in expanded up there. We went through lots of trainees and had as many people on our fires as we could get. Lots of UTF's kept coming back each day. Had one that came back from NICC in under 2 minutes. I think that was a record!! The SEZ training meeting will be held Oct 27 at the Tucson Fire Center at 1000. I think we have some exciting things to talk about. Come to the meeting to hear all the details. The calendar will be up the first week of November. I'm hoping it will be filled with dates and not the dreaded "TBA". We will be needing instructors and coaches so if you have any interest in teaching, let me know. I will find a place for you... See ya at the meeting Cheryl SEZ Training Coordinator
