2017 Klamath River TREX Application: October 2 to October 15, 2017 Orleans, CA
The objective of this training is to provide communities along the Klamath River with experience and training on how to plan and implement controlled burns, protect communities from wildfires, and prepare for managing wildfires for resource objectives.

This training is designed to integrate a diverse group of fire practitioners with varying degrees of knowledge and experience. Participants include interested individuals, tribal members, local contractors, federal and state firefighters, volunteer firefighters, non-profit organizations including The Nature Conservancy staff and volunteers, university students, county/regional regulators and out-of-region and international guests and fire workers.

The training is organized using a Type 3 Incident Management Team. Participants will serve in qualified and trainee positions in Operations, Logistics, Planning, and Finance and as members of the Command and General Staff. Operations participants will be on a burn team and will assist with preparing, scouting, briefing, igniting, holding, mop-up, and patrol on numerous controlled burns in the area. We will also complete pre- and post-fire monitoring, train with equipment, practice fireline leadership skills, and learn about local fire ecology and fire management. There will be field trips to past TREX burns, areas burned in recent wildfires and presentations from local tribal members and other community members, scientists, land managers, and practitioners.
