Week Six… Prep Work

The weekend before brought the area much rain so their will be no prescribed burning this week. That does not mean a week of relaxation in the “fire world.” It means a week of back breaking prep work. We start the days going out to Chino Valley and meeting with Crew 2’s second-in-command, Corey. Corey directs us to archaeological sites that wont get burned, or new areas where hand line needs to be dug. This week we got to work with saws, pulaski’s, mcleod’s, blowers, rakes and anything else that will get the job done. It’s a great week in the Fire World!
