This class is now rescheduled to September 1-4, 2020. The reason for this was the instructor received deployed requests to the Apple Fire!
Note: we will be following the local/state health officials and CDC guidelines for COVID. We also will be taking student temperatures each day and require that all students attending wear a mask in class. We will be maintaining social distancing in the classroom and we have reduced student class sizes. We will also be implementing additional controls/mitigations to include disinfecting tables and chairs each day to reduce vulnerabilities.
This class is by far THE most important class you can take. Understanding fire behavior is critical for all firefighters. You want to take this class from an instructor who is an FBAN 5 and that has expert knowledge with fire behavior. You do not want to take this class from a community college instructor who does not have the same qualifications.

The dress is casual but respectful and uniforms are okay. Bring a laptop computer with you to class each day. Student materials will be on flash-drives.
Course Description: This is a classroom-based skills course designed to prepare the prospective fireline supervisor to undertake safe and effective fire management operations. It is the second course in a series that collectively serves to develop fire behavior prediction knowledge and skillsets. Fire environment differences are discussed as necessary; the instructor will stress the local fire behavior conditions.
If you want to improve your fire behavior experience, knowledge, skill sets, and abilities to keep you out of trouble then this class is a must-attend.
