The TCFP Basic Wildland Fire Fighter performance skills were designed to meet both the NFPA and NWCG national standards. For optimal learning, scenario-based training and role-playing is recommended; however, based on departmental needs certain activities may be simulated by other means.

I really can’t find a least valuable part to this course. These three days brought many different groups and dept. and made them realize that if we are not all on the same page, then we will never achieve our goals.
