CHFD WILDLAND

The CHFD Wildland Program was started in March of 2020.  Firefighters receive specialized training/certifications and deploy throughout the State and Nation to assist with wildland fires and natural disasters.  During the 2020 wildland fire season, CHFD firefighters deployed 11 times to fires in Colorado, South Dakota, and California,  On the line battling the two largest fires in Colorado State history, Cameron Peak and East Troublesome, our firefighters came face to face with the fury wildland fire can present.  The work is rigorous but rewarding.  Deployments regularly consist of 16 hour days (day and night), for 14 days or longer.  They traverse rugged terrain, cut down trees, dig fire lines, and provide structure protection in temperatures that vary from above 100 degrees F to below freezing.
