Refresher & basic firefighter training schedule – Forestry 2023

The Division of Forestry & Fire Protection is offering basic firefighter training and red card refresher courses across the state. Registration is currently open for most classes and important registration deadlines can be found on the Forestry’s website. Spring is quickly approaching, and we ask that you share this page with people you know who are interested in protecting Alaska and all of the people from around the world who love the “Great Land”.

First line of fireline EMTs

Having qualified and capable medical first responders among initial attack firefighters directly on the fireline is crucial to treating trauma in the field, especially in Alaska. Organized by BLM AFS, this three-week Basic EMT class is routinely offered to AFS and State of Alaska wildland firefighters who may be the only ones working on a remote fire.
