Introduction to ICS
S-130/190 Firefighter Training
and Introduction to Wildland Fire Behavior
What you need for the class:
A sturdy pair of leather boots — hiking, work or combat boots are fine. You just need something with ankle support for hiking the hillside during the field exercise. However, if you need to buy a pair of boots, buy something that meets the interagency standard for wildland firefighter boots.
Cotton clothing — cotton jeans and long-sleeved cotton shirt.
Leather gloves — heavy-duty leather - no cotton or synthetic mechanic-type gloves.
- Laptop computer — optional, but helpful to get started on updating your resume and applying for firefighting jobs.
Students are not required to provide other personal protective equipment, but are asked to bring whatever wildland gear they have.
Bedding and bath linens are provided by Ponderosa Lodge.
