Some more training would help.

Forest fires are some of the most dangerous fire a crew can be one. A shift in the wind or increase in the wind can cause a blowup within a matter of minutes. You can have a 20 acre fire, have a blow up and be battling a 100 fire in just a few short minutes. Been there, done that several times in the western part of the USA with the USFS.. And it sucks. BSLFD needs to get with NCFS and train on forest fires as much as possible. Yeah you might say well we do train. But sometimes volunteer departments work mainly on structure fires and thats what they mainly train for.. But departments around the Brunswick Co area should look more forest fire training..
