Emphasizing pre-planning, thinking "beyond your own back yard" and encouraging joint training and practice rural fires can have successful outcomes. The class covers response capabilities, strengths and weakness of the department as well as considerations for farm fires in buildings, areas involving common farm chemicals, machinery, fields and/or crops.
