Event description

Description

The ​Metro Advanced Wildland School (MAWS) ​is ​an ​opportunity ​to ​work ​on ​Task ​Books ​in ​specific ​performance ​demonstration ​areas ​that ​are ​typically ​difficult ​to ​accomplish. ​The ​school ​is ​not ​designed ​to ​complete ​all ​of ​the ​required ​performance ​areas ​in ​the ​Task ​Book. ​

Positions covered include:

  • Fire Fighter Type 1 (FFT1) - NEW FOR 2017

Strike Team/Task ​Force ​Leader ​students ​must ​show ​up ​with ​a fire department ​vehicle ​and ​NOT ​on ​an ​engine ​with ​the ​crew.

Designated Signers: We are also asking agencies to provide a "Designated Signer" who can facilitate actual Task Book sign-offs. MAWS will work with students who are unable to provide their own Designated Signer.
