Even in relatively quiet fire seasons like the one just past, you can count on the Klamath National Forest for at least a couple of tough fires.

Rugged terrain and hot, dry summers make the Klamath River country highly prone to wildfire.  So it should come as no suprise to find people training there now, with an emphasis on prescribed fire. 

A TREX--Training Exchange--is currently underway, with a focus on protecting communities from wildfire. 

We hear more about THIS exercise and TREXs generally.
