Wildfire suppression courses address a range of firefighting tactics needed in order to suppress wildfires. Firefighting efforts in wildland areas require different techniques, equipment, and training from the more familiar structural firefighting. Wildfire suppression also addresses the issues of the wildland-urban interface, where populated areas border with wild land areas.
Some courses listed below are available through an agreement with the Missouri Department of Conservation and meet National Wildfire Coordination Group (NWCG) guidelines and are offered in conjunction with our annual Summer Fire School. Other NWCG topics may be available upon request.
