Class in Wild Land Fire Control – August 9 REMINDER: THIS IS TODAY!

By | August 9, 2018

Here’s an update…

Please Note:  Rick Trembath is on a fire, so a Mr. Mahugh will be teaching the class, and bringing with him several items that he sells for Wildland Fire Fighting.

Here is a message from the Heitz…

Rick Trembath of Flathead Forestry and Fire Consulting will be conducting a class in Wild Land Fire Control at Sondreson Hall at 10:00 am on Thursday, August 9. Trembath, some of you will remember, was head of structure protection on the Wedge Fire in 2003, and chief of the Big Fork Fire Department. He should know his material well, having retired from USFS after many years just before the Wedge.

If you are interested in learning how you can contribute to working on fire control on your own property, or helping the North Fork Irregulars (who are getting old, you know) in slowing a smaller fire start until USFS crews can arrive, please plan on attending. There may be a charge for getting Trembath here, but, at this time, we aren’t sure of that.

Please notify Dick Leigh (dickleigh30@, Kevin Ulrichsen, or Irv Heitz ( if you are planning to attend.

Janet :Leigh will provide the main lunch, but please bring a side dish, salad, or dessert to share.

See you there!!
