I decided to create a blog for my first season as a wildland firefighter. For those of you who do not talk to my mom and get updates from her, I recently started a position with the United States Forest Service as a fire technician. Yesterday (06/14/2019) was my first day on the job and I decided that I want to document what it is like to be in this position and shed light in the field of wildland firefighting. Bear with me as this is my first blog and I have no idea what I am doing, so sit back and enjoy my experimental project.
P.S. Next week I head off to Guard School, immersive training for getting certified to fight wildland fire!
