One thought on “Wildland fire leadership campaign”

  1. I sure don’t remember requiring a “campaign” to provide leadership when running a crew, nor do I remember a “campaign” needed for a fireline decision to be made.
    One only has to read the WFL website mission statement –
    “to promote cultural change in the work force … ”
    to understand what the real intent is here.
