Wildland Firefighting

The Fire Department Training Program provides fire-training courses to rural fire departments through a federal grant received by the N.C. Forest Service. This training allows fire departments to be able to safely, efficiently, and effectively suppress wildland fires while protecting citizens property and forest resources.
