Rio Hondo Community College offers an aggressive Type-II Wildland Hand Crew Class.
The Wildland Fire Academy train cadets who are interested in a career in Fire Service.
These cadets participate in actual brush clearance 2-3 times a week throughout the course,
assisting with “fuel” removal before wildfire season begins.
We have Alumni currently working nationwide with private, local, state and federal fire agencies
such as the US Forest Service (USFS), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Oregon Department
of Forestry (ODF), Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA), City of Los Angeles Fire Department
and Grayback Forestry.
