The goal of the training to learn how to carry out the tasks during the forest fire fighting, ensure effective utilization of the personnel and vehicles under their supervision and  increase capabilities of coordination with other units. Each trainee is assigned a role in the scenario created by the instructor to respond to a forest fire.
