(3 hrs. lect. per week) FIRE 151 Introduction to Wildland Fire Control (3) Prerequisite: Placement in ENG 100; MATH 50 or Placement in MATH 150 or higher FIRE majors only. Introduction to basic wildland fire organization, ICS, fire behavior, air operations, suppression methods, tools and equipment. Emphasis on fire safety and basic introduction to portable pumps, water use, and chain saws. May be taken on a CR/N basis. (3 hrs. lect. per week) FIRE 152 Wildland Fire Control Field Methods (3) Prerequisite or Co-requisite: FIRE 151 Introduction to wildland fire suppression field strategies, tactics and techniques. The course is structured around hands-on training in an outdoor environment. Students are familiarized with tools, techniques and how to best apply them in the wildland fire context. (6 hrs. lect. per week)

FIRE 156 Wildland Incident Command (3) Prerequisite: Placement in ENG 100; MATH 50 or Placement in MATH 150 or higher Recommended Prep: FIRE 151 and FIRE 152 This course defines terms and examines concepts, theories, and principles of the Incident Command System and wildland fire in the fire service. Major topics include the Incident Command System function, staff functions in single command structures, management of various disasters, and initial and escape fire attack situations for wildland fire. (3 hrs. lect. per week) FIRE 157 Intermediate Wildland Fire Behavior (3) Prerequisite: Placement in ENG 100; MATH 50 or Placement in MATH 150 or higher Recommended Prep: FIRE 151 This course is designed to instruct prospective fireline personnel in wildland fire behavior for effective and safe management operations. Fire behavior is not an independent phenomenon - it is the product of the environment in which the fire is burning. In applying this definition to fire, we can then regard fire environment as the conditions, influences, and modifying forces that control the fire behavior. Fire behavior must obey physical laws. We consider certain types of fire behavior unusual or unexpected only because we have failed to evaluate properly the conditions, influences, and forces that are in control. To predict fire behavior, and to control and use fire effectively and safely, we must understand and use the interactions of fire with its environment. This course will examine the fire environment - what it is, how it varies and why, and how fire itself alters the total picture. (3 hrs. lect. per week) FIRE 193V Cooperative Education (1–6) Prerequisite: Placement in ENG 100; MATH 50 or Placement in MATH 150 or higher Instructor approval required. FIRE majors only.
