Cowlitz 2 Fire & Rescue Wildland Firefighting

Wildland deployments are a summer staple at C2FR, and we are as effective as we are due to the support from the Planning Section. Captain Graham is the Southwest Region Alternate Coordinator for the WSP, and a main contact for the DNR. We lead a regional strike team and deploy multiple resources on short notice. FF Meller is the crossover staff to help with wildland deployments.

Wildland Firefighters must meet strict training and fitness requirements before they can be deployed. Both career staff and volunteers go on wildland deployments. Those firefighters who sign up must be ready to leave with an hour of receiving their orders, and they may be on assignment for up to sixteen days. We greatly appreciate the dedication of our members to protecting our state from wildland fires.
