The Role of NWSA in Wildland Fire/Emergency Incident Support
Wildfire destroys everything in its path. With a mere shift of the
wind, it can become a monster endangering those who don’t understand
its nature. Federal, state and local government firefighter skills are
honed by arduous and constant training required to fight wildland fires
and survive. Anyone who doesn’t have that level of training jeopardizes
everyone on the fireline.
