New Mexico Crews Ready for Wildfire Season

Wildfire training in Bernalillo County



ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KOB4) – It may still be winter, but firefighters in Bernalillo County are already stepping up their wildfire training.

Saturday was a red-flag warning day, which is uncommon in February. It’s been a very warm and dry winter, meaning there could be a lot more work this fire season.

Every year, the National Wildland Coordinating Group requires wildland firefighters to go through refresher training.
