Document Description
The Heavy Fire Equipment (HFEO) Safety Training is an annual field skill refresher workshop whose objective is to ensure that the HFEOs have training and minimum operating skills when working in varying terrain, soil and vegetation types. The HFEOs utilize several models of bulldozers, graders, backhoes and loaders during the safety training. The project includes training in fire line operations, fuel break construction and maintenance, watercourse crossings, safety and landing zone construction. Students additionally learn techniques to limit or avoid environmental degradation during fire control operations such as identification and avoidance of archaeological sites; water quality protection such as providing buffer areas for watercourses and proper watercourses crossing installation and removal; erosion control techniques such as proper water break installation and spacing; and identification and avoidance of sensitive areas such as wetlands and sensitive wildlife habitat.
