Week Fire…RX Burns Begin

Now the real work begins. The Prescott National Forest starts it’s first prescribed burn of the season this week. The VFC is sent on Monday to dig lines and prep the area for the prescribed burns that will be conducted on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. We are still waiting to officially receive our “Red Cards” so this week we are appointed the duty of watching the weather. Weather is a very important part of Fire and we are more than happy to take up the job. Where we are positioned we are able to see flames on the ground. This renews our spirits and the VFC is amped to complete our Red Card Training. Friday we complete a mandatory online course so we should be receiving our Red Cards any day now.
