The 13th Annual Wildfire Academy has come to a close ...

It was another successful year with over 650 students coming from all over Arizona, plus 23 other states.

The word is out about the premier training venue in the southwest! We offered 50 classes from Basic Wildland Firefighter to being an Incident Commander, as well as some All Hazard and Incident Management Classes.
Our Academy is run as a Real Incident with a complete
Incident Management Team conducting briefings in the morning.
  • The Planning Section: Facilitating planning meetings, producing Incident Actions Plans and keeping track of all overhead (Students, Instructors and Staff)
  • The Operations Section: Making sure all classes run smoothly
  • The Logistics Sections: Providing all the support needs from markers to buses, complete with inspections
  • Safety Officers: Monitoring all activities
  • Public Information Officers: Getting the word out to the public and working with any VIP’s that come to campus – all coordinated by the Incident Commander.
Our motto for the Academy is ''Always Remember''
This covers a lot of aspects of our lives. We are already working towards next year’s academy to be held March 5 – 11, 2016. Registration will begin November 1, 2015. Come back to this page and look for the ''register'' button. Hope to see you there!

Congrats to Greg Smith:
