Video: Firefighter Safety in the Wildland/Urban Interface

This video titled “Firefighter Safety in the Wildland/Urban Interface” covers three actual or near-entrapments on wildland fires, featuring interviews with the firefighters involved.

The incidents include:

  • a tractor-plow operator in Florida,
  • a CalFire engine crew in northern California that took refuge in a house as their engine burned, and
  • a narrow escape in New Mexico that may have been on the Cerro Grande fire in 2000.

The video was produced by the National Wildland/Urban Interface Fire Program and the National Fire Protection Association.

  1. I’ve been using this set of videos/DVDs for the past 4-5 years in my RT-130 Refresher classes and they are well-received; there is also a video on Fire Behavior, and another on WUI Tactics. Each are 20 minutes long, and have an accompanying Instructor Guide to lead discussions. And they are FREE from the USFA.
