I have not checked this for accuracy, I am just forwarding it for anybody who would be interested. It sounds more like a parent and Big Kid thing.

According to the local paper the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, New Mexico State Forestry, and the Otero County Fire Services are hosting the Wildland Fire Academy on April 7th through 9th. � It is free and open to everyone including food and lodging (simulated wildland fire camp) at the Sacramento Mountain Retreat in Mayhill, New Mexico. To pre-register you can contact Gus Marker by phone at 439-2612, or by email at email@example.com
That is a beautiful area in the Lincoln National Forest and the classes sound interesting. �They will be covering Maps, Compasses, GPS, Incident Command Systems, Portable Pumps, Air Operations, Fire Tool Kit, Fire Strategies, Sand Table Exercises, Radio Operations, and Staging Area Management.
