Inland Empire Crew Readies Equipment for Return to Fireline

Corpsmembers in full uniform stand near water pipes where hoses are attached and look at the hoses.

Corpsmembers from the Inland Empire Center work alongside U.S. Forest Service personnel as they help test fire hoses and other materials at the regional logistic center in Ontario, CA.

If you’ve ever wondered what happens to all of that fire hose once Corpsmembers wind it up and send it back from a wildfire, well, here’s your answer.

CCC Inland Empire Corpsmembers are assisting our partners at the U.S. Forest Service by putting that used hose to the test, literally.

The crew is testing hoses and checking all returned equipment from fire base camps to see if it’s in good enough shape to be re-used on the next incident.
