Crew 11: Season Wrap Up

Our crew this summer made a strong transition from having limited to little experience interacting with chainsaws and the fire community to heavy involvement with practical experience in many elements of protecting and preserving the environmental landscape throughout Montana. Our team received S212 wildland firefighter chainsaw training from Helena Ranger District in addition to completing guard school and red card certifications. Each hitch provided a unique opportunity to improve our skills as sawyers and gain valuable experience with interacting in the team environment. Our workloads throughout the summer ranged from mellow project work to trail maintenance to fencing to felling varying types of evergreens to digging fire line on an active fire. In the big rock candy mountains, our team did repeatedly attempt to find and film Sasquatch, several failed attempts ensued.  There is no doubt that the search will continue for all members of our team in continuing to find positions throughout the fire community in addition to scouring the wood line for our furry upright friend.  Crew 11 signing off.
