Members of Teton Interagency Fire are meeting this week for refresher sessions as they renew their certifications to fight wildfires. Bridger Teton National Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says topics discussed are critical for firefighters’ survival. Cernicek says in order to be qualified to be working on a wildfire firefighters need to participate in an annual refresher which reviews the standard fire orders and “watch out” situations. Then later this spring, firefighters from the region’s multiple firefighting agencies will participate in an event called “All Fire Day.” Firefighters from all of the agencies around the counties, the forest service, the park service and the elk refuge send their firefighters to participate and practice cooperating and using each other’s equipment before a large fire happens. Cernicek says the annual certification classes are required for firefighters to be “red-carded” to be allowed to work on fires on federal lands. Regional fire officials are predicting this summer to be another active fire season.
