Wildland Fire Training

Rio Hondo College currently has 37 cadets in the Wildland Fire Academy (February 2007). We will be offering another Wildland Fire Academy in late spring and are looking for people to attend. If you are successful, you can work on our TYPE II Handcrew for the 2007 Fire Season or you may be hired to work on an engine or other Firefighter positions with the
US Forest Service. You must be able to pass the Academy, the Forest Service Pack test and be certified as a firefighter upon completion of the Wildland Fire Academy. If interested, please email Tracy Rickman at or visit
