Slash Pile Building Seminar

We can cater this class to you! There is not certificate but this is a great session to teach those new recruits or those planning to do any mitigaiton work how to properly build a pile after locating a reasonable spot to build it.


Defensible Space Clean Ups Seminar

This is a great seminar for those departments that are going to be doing more light defensible space work that doesn't always include the heavy fuels such as trees. This is geared towards those areas that are dealing with tall grass, needle build up, leaves, shrubs and other smaller fine fuels. We will give you some good pointers on where to start on a clean up, what is realistically a hazard and how to maintain the defensible space for the long term. 

***For departments with heavy engine use we can be sure to go to your area and look at local homes and also talk about access and egress for those homes you will be dealing with. 



We are currently charging:

$75 a day per student


Depending on location of your department and the site being taught at, an additional travel/ lodging cost will be added to the total bill.
