What is New with the Crew
 
Engine 51 in Kings Canyon.

Congratulations to Captain Smith for successfully completing his "401 series" education requirement at the University of Las Vegas. Based upon new and changing employment standards, leadership in fire management must complete a bachelor's degree or at least 24 credits of courses that would be required as part of a B.S. degree in forestry, fire, natural resources or closely related field. Larry has spent the last six months completing this requirement. Congratulations, Larry. We are proud of you.
