DESCRIPTION: The S-131 training is a course designed to meet the training needs of the
Firefighter Type 1 (FFT1). This interactive class contains several tactical
decision games designed to facilitate both learning the objectives and class
discussion. Topics include fireline reference materials, communications,
and tactical decision making.
S-133 examines the wildland fire environment and the indicators firefighters
should observe on the fire line in order to anticipate fire behavior.

training and travel time may result in students being required to put
in more than the normal 8 hours per day.
