Butte Wildland Fire Training

Butte Fire Center Corpsmembers practice hose lays as part of wildland fire training at the center in Magalia, CA.

Ever wonder what it takes to become a wildland firefighter?

It’s determination, physical strength, and the ability to persevere through the pain.

We’re talking about mile upon mile of hiking, blisters the size of silver dollars – and, did we mention cutting fire line by the mile?

Yeah, it’s hard work, but every wildland firefighting Corpsmember has his or her reason why they push through and get the job done.
