Fort Carson learns skills to assist in national firefighting efforts

Pfc. Alberto Barragan, a healthcare specialist assigned to Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment, 4th Battalion, 42nd Field Artillery Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, digs a fire-line during wildland fire suppression training led by the National Interagency Fire Center at Fort Carson training areas, June 30, 2012. A fire-line separates fire from other flammable material to keep it from spreading to other areas, allowing firefighters to control and contain fire. Soldiers conducted two days of introductory-level instruction led by firefighting professionals from U.S. Forest Service and NIFC, the nation's support center for wildland firefighting. During the classroom setting, soldiers learned basic, essential skills needed to safely fight and suppress fire, and put those skills to use during field training, where they received hands-on training.
