Wildland Firefighter Course Pictures

The following pictures are scenes from the Wildland FireFighting Course, that was given to members of the Search and Rescue Group.  After taking this course the rescue team set up a ( HOT SHOT TEAM ).  Our mission is to help the Forestry Department with large forest fires through out the State of Maine and Aroostook County.
