This course is being offered through a partnership between UW Arboretum and Incident Management Specialist LLC.to the citizens in the Wisconsin and surrounding states. This course is being offered to educate the public on the roles and responsibilities of a firing boss (FIRB) and outlines duties of other personnel who may engage firing operations. The course discusses and illustrates common firing devices and techniques to safely suppress wildfires and manage prescribed fires.

Because of the current Covid 19 environment the delivery of this course will be done online and a virtual presentation rather than having the students be required to come together in a formal classroom setting.

This course is 16 hours in length and was developed by the National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) using a blended approach to learning, meaning that it contains a mix of online and virtual instructor-led training (VILT).
