As part of my effort to learn about all the different agencies at NIFC, I went around the offices, including the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), interviewing their communications coordinators.
As part of my introduction to NIFC, I was taken on a tour of the facility. It was a lot to take in all at once, but I learned much about the organizational structure of wildland firefighting.
