To succeed in the Fire Service and make a career in Fire Management.
During the 2013 Fire season I worked on Apache Kid Wildland Fire Module as a squad boss leading a squad of 3 to 6 crewmembers depending on the task at hand. My duties included maintaining specialized tools and equipment for firefighting , as well as facilitating on the job training for crewmembers. I completed my ICT5 taskbook while out of region on fire assignment. While on assignment I took the role of ICT5(t) on three separate incidents of varying complexities. One of these initial attack responses was an incident within an incident which took a considerable amount of coordination and communication with the adjoining resources and team members. I successfully completed the Wildland Firefighter Apprenticeship Program.

During the 2012 fire season I worked in the Albuquerque Interagency Dispatch Center as an Expanded Dispatch Recorder. During my time in dispatch I became proficient in the Wildcad and Resource Ordering and Statusing Systems. As my skills developed I proceeded to work in these systems independently and train others in the skills I learned. By the end of the 2012 season I was developed into a qualified EDRC. I also worked as Initial Attack Dispatcher(t) on over 50 separate emerging wildland fire incidents of varying complexities and size throughout the season.
