Basic Firefighter Classes hosted by La Jolla Band of Luiseño Indians

As part of our Stewardship Pathways program, a 40-hour Basic Firefighter Training course held Monday January 2nd through Friday, January 6th, 2023 at the La Jolla Indian Reservation. Learn more on today's blog!

This week-long training covered NWCG course L-180 (Introduction to Fireline Leadership), S-110 (Basic Wildland Fire Orientation), S-130 (Basic Firefighter), and S-190 (Introduction to Wildland Fire Behavior) for 12 participants. Exercises supported participants with no experience in wildland fire and who hope to qualify as firefighters and incident and support personnel. This training highlighted cultural and traditional Indigenous knowledges and perspectives in support of land stewardship through the use of fire.

This training was hosted by the La Jolla Band of Luiseño Indians in close partnership with the Southern California Interagency Wildland Fire & Fuels Cadre and the Stewardship Pathways Program, led by the Climate Science Alliance and its Tribal Working Group.
