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.
                            With these two courses combined in a one day session, duration of
                            training and travel time may result in students being required to put
                            in more than the normal 8 hours per day.
