Safety Volunteers: Thanks for riding this bronco with us. We were able to get back up, dust off our chaps, and hop back into the saddle. We have another certified trainer for the CPR/First Aid training! We will be reverting to the original timeline as listed below. Please reach out if you have any questions.

Corner lot, plenty of parking, but carpool if you can. We are in an HOA but we've had no noise or neighbor complaints so far, let's keep it that way. 3 dogs live here, a gentle giant and 2 old Chihuahuas. Please don't bring any more pets. There is a bathroom downstairs and upstairs. If you are bringing a service animal please let me know so we can expect their presence with you. VIRTUAL TRAINING will be simulcast for Sanctuary.
If you can’t attend, ON-LAND TRAINING will be done on Friday. Rangers from 1-5 pm, Fire from 5-6 pm, Sanctuary from 6-8 pm, Meats from 8-10 pm. Please reach out to your Lead to see about additional virtual training opportunities.
Note: Please complete your independent ICS training prior to the Expo if you are not previously certified. If this training is not completed by burn you will have to be reassigned
Roles that require FEMA Training - ICS 100: Shift Supervisors and MHA
Roles that must ALSO have FEMA Training - ICS 200: Leads and Duty Chiefs and MHA
You know the drill - it's a burner event, so bring along everything you need, but at the very least bring a folding chair or a comfy floor cushion, your water, and anything else you know you will be wanting. We will be feeding you.
