Firefighters practice wildland firefighting in hills above Milpitas

On Wednesday and Thursday, June 12th and 13th, 2013 firefighters from several south bay fire departments converged on Ed Levin County Park in the hills east of Milpitas to hone their wildland firefighting skills.

The two days of live fire training included hand tool familiarization, ignition practices and vegetation fire suppression techniques in a carefully controlled area of the park.

Firefighter training also served to assist County Parks by providing a means of burning medusahead, a non-native invasive species of grass that has gained a foothold in Ed Levin Park.
