    Default S-190 & S-130

    Greetings, I just got involved with a progressive volunteer dept in Santa Barbara CA. They are going to train me in S-190 & S-130, while I am already an EMT. Any suggestions for going in to the two classes? After I am scheduled to goto the fire academy this fall to learn everything else (and a repete of the other courses). I have Fire Protection and Systems classes under my belt. Thanks for all the help in advance.

    My advice? Relax!

    S-130 and S-190 are very basic courses in wildland firefighting. You should have no problem keeping up with the program. So...pay attention to the instructor, ask questions....and everything will fall right into place.

    NJFFSA16 is right, S130/190 is very basic. After you have those under your belt, see if they offer any further training and get as much experience as you can.

    As mentioned S130 / 190 are pretty basic classes, if you pay attention you should not have any problems. If you really want to get a head start you could look into getting The Firefighters Handbook on Wildland Firefighting, in my opinion this is the best book on wildland fire available.
