S-130 & S-190 Wildland Fire Annual Safety Refresher Course

We Must Never Forget

Every day - give thanks to those firefighters who have fallen and to those who continue to rescue and save the lives of so many people, animals and property.


If you wish to continue in the footsteps of the many "heroes" before you, then respect your instructors, team leaders, fellow firefighters, and ALL the safety rules and orders that you learn.  Let the "fallen" at least have the "dignity" that they have not passed over in vain.  

If this above video helps make you a better and safer firefighter then maybe the "fallen" did not "lose the battle" in vain and the producers of the video will have accomplished a goal of helping you and your fellow firefighters to be safe.

Bless your souls and be safe.  

... come home tonight .. with no shame ... and no sorrow...


Wildland firefighting gets "in the blood" so-to-speak.  A short stint or a full-on career in this field can be very rewarding and truly character building.  

  • Be humble, throw away the "attitude" and the "rambo" approach.
  • There is no tree, forest, or home worth any person's life. 

Be safe, be well, and enjoy a very potentially rewarding and exciting career.
