Wildland

Readiness and Response

The responsibilities of the Wildland Division are broken down into two main categories. The first responsibility of the Wildland Division is wildland fire suppression readiness and response. This responsibility includes coordinating the wildland training, overseeing equipment and the equipment cache, managing the Wildland Operations Plan, the Resource Mobilization plan, and all National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) certifications for regional and district staff.

Public Education

The second responsibility is as important as the first; reducing the threat of a catastrophic wildland fire in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) through prevention efforts like public education and hazardous fuels mitigation. The Wildland Division is responsible for coordinating Firewise activities with communities, Ready Set Go Programs, updating the 2008 Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP), coordinating fuel reduction projects in high priority areas, grant research, managing the wildland fuel crew, and a Santa Fe County WUI Hazard Homeowner Assessment Project.
