Wildland Firefighters Oil and Gas Safety Summit - April 1, 2010 - Rifle, CO

The goal of this year's Wildland Firefighters Oil and Gas Safety Summit is to bring the wildland fire service together in order to ensure the safety of the public, industry workers and firefighters when wildfires impact the oil and gas fields.  The focus will be on sharing information in a "train the trainer" setting.  This year's session is primarily aimed at firefighters.  Separate sessions for industry workers will be held on an individual basis throughout fire season.

The summit includes:
- H2S Safety Training
- Gas/Oil Field Safety Orientation for Firefighters
