Franklin Fire Fighting held its Bureau of Land Management Wild land Certification graduation ceremony, March 27. This class of 31 seniors was the largest group of students Franklin has certified in one year. Students received classroom and hands-on training this semester under the direction of BLM’s Dean Fernandez to earn certification as Basic Wild land Firefighters. These high school students will be eligible to work this summer during what is expected to be a very busy fire season throughout the western United States. Some former students have become fulltime BLM fire fighters after high school.
