    (Livingston, Montana-AP) -- Two groups of New York City
    firefighters are in Montana this week to learn more about managing
    major fires from wildland firefighters.
    Five officers from the New York Fire Department arrived in
    Livingston, Montana Monday to observe the team fighting the Rough
    Draw complex of fires.
    Two other teams are spending the week at fire camps near
    A group of wildland firefighters showed up in New York the day
    after the September Eleventh, 2001 attacks to offer help. New York
    firefighters were impressed with their Western counterparts'
    planning, mapping and communications.
    The wildland firefighters helped the F-D-N-Y with everything
    from a communications network to a distribution point for food for
    the search dogs.
