May 16 - The recruits of the Sacramento Fire Academy spent all of last week in wildland fire training. Skills learned included hand tools, drip torches, cutting hand line, fire shelter deployment, and progressive hose lays. For many of the recruits, who have previous experience with wildland fire agencies, these skills were just a refresher. Many others were learning the skills for the very first time. When these new fire fighters hit the line, they will be ready to respond to local wildland incidents, as well as being qualified for deployment anywhere in California as part of the state-wide Master Mutual Aid plan.
