RT-130, Wildland Fire Safety Training Annual Refresher (WFSTAR)
Annual Fireline Safety Refresher Training should be designed to provide up-to-date fireline safety information to employees holding Incident Command System (ICS) qualifications requiring this training. Individual sessions of Annual Fireline Safety Refresher Training should contain content pertinent to the registered students.
There are four core components to the Annual Refresher Training which include:
- Entrapment Avoidance – Use training and reference materials to study the risk management process as identified in the Incident Response Pocket Guide (IRPG), PMS 461 as appropriate to participants, e.g., LCES, Standard Firefighting Orders, Watch Out Situations, Wildfire Decision Support System direction, Fire Management Plan priorities.
- Current Issues – Review and discuss current topics that could be based on the new modules or areas of concern identified by your agency or geographic area. Review forecasts and assessments for the upcoming fire season and discuss implications for firefighter safety.
- Fire Shelter – Review and discuss last resort survival including escape and shelter deployment site selection. Conduct “hands-on” fire shelter inspections. Practice shelter deployments in applicable crew/module configurations. Wearing fireline personal protective equipment during fire shelter practice can enhance the learning experience for students.
- Other Hazards and Safety Issues – Choose additional hazard and safety subjects, which may include SAFENET, current safety alerts, site/unit specific safety issues and hazards.
