Wildland Fire Team

Wildland Logo

The Highland Rescue Wildland Fire Team is a specialty team that provides EMS and medical support on wildland fires. Since Highland Rescues’ district is in a Wildland Urban Interface, the potential for wildfire activity is high. Due to this potential, Highland Rescue created and maintains this specialty team, to allow for qualified personnel to support wildfire operations within the District.

The team responds to wildfires in the District to provide dedicated support to wildland fire operations, allowing for routine EMS coverage to be maintained. Members of the team meet NWCG requirements and serve in fireline medical positions. Team members, when available also deploy to state and national wildfires and other natural disasters.
