On Sunday June 11th, there will be a large gathering of fire service personnel and equipment at the Southern Humboldt Community Park near Garberville. Expect a large number of vehicles to be arriving in the early morning and departing in the afternoon. Live fire may be used in this training exercise, which would create some smoke, and we hope to have the participation of a CalFire helicopter as well. This “RT-130” training is the completion for NWCG (Nat’l Wildfire Coordinating Group) certification of new Type 2 fire fighters from the Southern Humboldt Wildland Fire Academy, and also is an annual skills and safety refresher for all fire service members. We expect approximately 120 people from across the county to be attending. Public access to some areas of the park will be limited for the duration of the training.
